Paul Murphy from WWL-TV did a piece last night on the JP Hospital lease deal. I have contended that the people of Jefferson Parish don't want to decide which of the 3 groups gets to lease the hospital but that the people of JP deserve the right to vote on whether there is a lease at all. We've not heard all of the available options - just the one option that Sheriff Normand thinks is best. In addition, I think it is morally wrong that Sheriff Normand and the JP Council had their friends in Baton Rouge change a 20-year-old law to take away your rights.
Paul did an interview with me about the hospital deal.
