From comments like “it’s the best thing to ever happen to Tehachapi” to “can’t wait for the ribbon-cutting,” the overall public sentiment in Tehachapi on Wednesday is just about everyone is happy Measure H passed.

Measure H earned an overwhelming “yes” vote of 89.02 percent on Election Day. The affirmative vote allows the Tehachapi Valley Healthcare District to enter into an affiliation with Adventist Health to complete construction of the new hospital at no additional cost to taxpayers, and take over basic operations of the district.
