It would be really hard to make something like this up. You really would have to think of the impossible.
A new website www.vivavalenti.com has appeared on the Internet. The site extols the need to have our county hospital administrator stay on after his current contract expires next year. Here is what part of the home page looks like:
The URL was issued October 9, 2015.
It probably will not come as a surprise to some of us that the site is registered to an out of town firm, Wilson Binkley Advertising & Marketing. They are based out of Las Cruces, New Mexico.
One of the quirks of our form of government is that the residents of Las Cruces benefit from our county and children’s hospital without bearing the tax burden.
The site offers an online petition where you can register your support for the idea of issuing a new contract to our county hospital administrator.
In the nine days the site has been registered (as of October 18, 2015) they indicate that 19 petitions have been signed.
Personally, I would be embarrassed.
We deserve better
