Tulare hospital approves by-district elections
Visialia Times-Delta

The Tulare Local HealthCare District Board of Directors voted unanimously Wednesday to approve by-district elections even though the ballot measure appears to have failed.

Some Hispanic citizens who pushed for by-district elections are not happy because they say the trustees divided up the district unfairly, creating only one Hispanic majority district even though the hospital district is 60 percent Hispanic.
