Barbara Truitt for Healthcare District Board

Let me tell you why I’m voting for Barbara Truitt. For almost 30 years I’ve shared talk and tears and truths with her. I’ve known her through some pretty tough times. She has a will of iron and a heart of gold.  She is passionate about helping her community.  She’s served on multiple boards—the Community Credit Union, SoHum School District, Mateel Community Center, Redwoods Rural Health Center, SoHum Economic Development Corporation, and the Redway Community Services District.  And always her dedication, her commitment to mediation, and willingness to talk have smoothed conflicts.

The current problems dividing our Healthcare district which has resulted in the loss of many of our medical personnel needs someone with her mediation experience and her practical business acumen.  She knows our community and has the wisdom and communication skills to bridge the divides between differing factions. For all the time I’ve known her, I’ve admired and respected her. We’re lucky she has decided to run for the Southern Humboldt Healthcare District Board.  She’s got my vote.  I hope she gets yours.

  • She did. I just met her at the Farmers Market and I sensed those traits in her.

    • I just realized that I should have pointed out that Barbara and I have a family relationship. She is my husband’s ex step-mom. But instead of that being a reason I might be prejudiced in her favor, rather, I think it is an indication of her commitment to making relationships work and to talking through conflicts—as step and ex are prefixes that often indicate a certain lack of harmony.

  • Kym… Thanks or this post. I had a real feeling of relief when I heard Barbara was running. She is so level headed and smart. I love the “Calm” in her poster. We could use some of that.

  • AND THE REST OF THE “SOME OF THAT” is of course Gary Wellborn and Corrine Stromstad. She is the historical vantage point with so much information about the hospital district and how it’s run. And Gary Wellborn is my third choice. He has spent 8 years on the finance committee and knows how it works. Things are looking up fiscally at the district. Let’s keep that ball in the air. Go Barb!
