Breaking Tri-City election down to the slates
San Diego Union-Tribune

No candidates, including the five allied incumbents — Larry Schallock, Dr. Cyril Kellet, Paul Campo, Ramona Finnila and Jim Dagostino — say they he want to “sell” Tri-City, the hospital in a public health district, to another health system. That’s political suicide.

But no candidate can argue with a straight face that a stand-alone hospital can be an island in the shark-infested waters of health care. That, too, is a form of suicide.
