Carlton out of line

I read with great interest Dr. Marguerite Carlton’s letter (“Mr. Jones’ deplorable attack, March 15). I believe the comments she made concerning Councilman Jimmy Jones were completely out of line. Dr. Carlton needs to step outside the inner circle of the hospital and reassess what her role exactly was. She also needs to provide a measure of transparency regarding contractual arrangements, benefits and income she and her practice received and continues to receive as a result of (KershawHealth Board of Trustees) decisions made while she was serving as a (trustee).

I completely agree with Mr. Jones’ comments and demonstrated interest in KershawHealth’s continued success. He is tasked with safeguarding the money that belongs to the people of Kershaw County. I know Councilman Jones personally. He cares about KershawHealth’s long-term ability to meet the healthcare needs of our community. He also cares about our hospital’s employees. To ensure the continued viability of our hospital, the finances must be under constant scrutiny.

When some of that money comes from taxpayers, additional diligence must be applied. That’s why we elected him. That’s what he is doing and needs to continue doing.
