So, Just a thought. Tom Murphy says CCH is a $200 million dollar business - why do they need our tax dollars at all?

Then he says he doesn't think the community has an appetite for an additional mil for them. According to Wyoming Statute, they can collect 3 mil, says CCH, and they do. I was also surprised that Murphy said Wyoming Statute required them to go before the Commissioners prior to entering a deal with UCHealth, as Commissioner Steve Hughes (now deceased) had told me specifically the hospital district does not answer to them or to anyone (when I asked them to reign in the corruption at CCMH), so I did some more research.

Tom Murphy thinks they can get more taxpayer money to fund that $200 million dollar business, and apparently they can get up to 6 mil with Commissioner approval, after a special election, and you know who counts the votes.

Watch it add up. Due to unforeseen events, 4 mils for the college, 6 mils for the hospital. If I understand this Sublette information correctly, the hospital district maybe can also assess us additionally - over 6 mil - for the $1.5 million dollar debt for fraudulent billing to Medicaid. "plus the number of mils necessary for the payment of the district debt plus interest thereon..."

Murphy says interesting things like, the small 5% that is taxpayer money, "that allows us to try to offer the service lines that are needed in the community, but are not profitable, or even breakeven." And "we have a fiduciary responsibility to make sure that the hospital is solvent and provides the best health care at the lowest possible cost."

If they don't break even, where are they are getting the hundreds of thousands to bonus and fire and compensate and hire new CEOs?

We're paying for management services out of Colorado, but we seem to be maintaining control of all management as well as paying the management, and now we've decided we will travel to Hulett, Wyoming to provide medical services? And we're paying someone in Crook County for the space to do it in. Does anyone imagine that there will be enough profit generated from traveling to Hulett to break even? The population was 309 in 2020. The only way I can wrap my mind around this is kickbacks or some kind of trafficking! Okay, I'm jaded, but you explain it in a way that makes sense.

I am aware that George Dunlap did raise some questions about the UCHealth issue at a Commissioners meeting, and I can assure you he is not the answer to anything. Dunlap was so incredibly corrupt it was unbelievable, for at least the last 10 years of his reign. One need merely watch a couple of the board meetings and review his behavior - which I wrote about to the News Record at the time, and they even printed it.

It's just overwhelming, isn't it.

I know many of you want to focus on the Library. This corruption in our community is like a Hydra with many heads, and every head needs to be attacked. Do we have enough Americans to go around?

Thank you for reading. The purpose of my campaigns is to highlight corruption and to get assistance from anyone who is able and willing to help return Gillette and Campbell County and Wyoming to American Ideals, and hopefully a culture that applies the law equally to all citizens regardless of position or social class. Thank you so much for the efforts you are making and have already made. Please forward to everyone that you know who might be interested in the information I share. God Bless You, and God Bless America.
