yes it DOES matter.
depends on the character of the one making the claim.
depends if they are facts to begin with.

FACTS ARE - that a lot of the anti med one bs was pure hearsay, false claims, slander, and propaganda caused and spread by the erc agenda, the council, and some on here.

FACTS ARE - that the people spoke and VOTED against pro med and the city council and the city council ignored it.

Are you attacking the character of our fire fighters? Sounds like one of a couple medic one employees to me....
What anti-medic one stuff was false and which of it was true? I would love to hear your opinion on this.

FACTS ARE- Pocahontas has better ambulance coverage now than before. End of story.

FACTS ARE- people voted to throw out the franchise award and have it re bid. Mostly because medic one lied saying that they didn't have time to apply and a bunch of other bs. It was re bid and awarded to the best qualified applicant. End of story.

You wouldn't love to hear anything other than your own words, but just becuse you asked, here goes....the city council PUBLICLY STATED MedOne service was "inadequate". The former hospital administrator wrote a letter stating the service was exemplary. The council buried that letter, hiding it from the public, and never mentioned it. Now tell me, if you were a voter, would you feel duped? MISLED? Deception is the method used by the council. Now, you revel in their dishonesty, and your nature is revealed as well. Knowing the lies that have been told by the council, you choose to follow that group. Sad.
nope

Can see your strawman setup there, and stupid medic one assumption.
I never attacked the character of any firefighters unless they were some of the "some" that i posted about

I, and likely many of the winning VOTER disagree with the unqualified councilman's slander that medic one coverage was "inadequate".

Your BS IS - "Pocahontas has better ambulance coverage now than before."

YOU SURE ON THAT?= very debatable.
You compared the figures/response times, etc?
Post em!

Your BS IS - "people voted to throw out the franchise award and have it re bid. Mostly because medic one lied saying that they didn't have time to apply and a bunch of other bs. It was re bid and awarded to the best qualified applicant. End of story."

VOTERS IN NO WAY ASKED FOR A REBID.
So not interested in your other "bs" claims.
End of your "story"

Is that the same hospital administrator that mismanaged all those funds and was sleeping with the wife of a certain medic one manager?? Lol. You might call that a little biased!! Lol.

And you still haven't listed any misstatements....

"any misstatements...."
YES

"Pocahontas has better ambulance coverage now than before"
PROVE IT! GOT THE FIGURES?
VOTERS SAID OTHERWISE!

"people voted to...... have it re bid."
NOT!

"Mostly because medic one lied.....a bunch of other bs.
PROVE THE LIE AND OTHER BS!
THE FIRST EMERGENCY ORDINANCE WAS CLEARLY ILLEGAL BY LAW AT THE TIME.

"It was re bid and awarded to the best qualified applicant."
VERY DEBATABLE!
AND WAS AGAINST THE VOTERS WISHES BY A BIASED UNQUALIFIED COUNCIL WITH AN AGENDA.

The main question in all of this back and forth is. HAS ANYONE DIED YET BECAUSE OF LACK OF COVERAGE? After all this time we have to just accept that privileges are going to be given to one company or another by every level of government. I'm sure that for every contract in every city in the country you could find a similar example. That being said MedicOne was screwed over as they were very prompt professional and courteous whenever our family needed them.

I can't forget that the voters REJECTED PROMED exclusive franchise...that is a fact that is provable, and was even reported in the local rag SH. It was an UP - DOWN vote, and PROmed got the thumbs down. Too bad our city council intentionally rejected the vote. They bullied and essentially FORCED their choice on the voters. I feel like I was...violated by the council. Kinda dirty, like nasty or something.

Pocahontas has more ambulances covering the county than before. That is a fact. I made the statement, it is up to you to prove me wrong. And don't cite that bs 10-6 comparison. You know medic one regularly didn't check 10-6 with 9-11. Speaking of 911, ask their opinion. They will tell you about the improvement.

How was the first ordinance illegal?

What is this secret agenda that your side always talks about? I have seen hidden agenda and secret agenda repeated numerous times. It is funny that you think there is an agenda yet no one can point to the motivation for all these people to have a supposed agenda.

You are correct, many people worked very hard against the franchise for at least a year. Now an attorney advises there are are few good options available, other than to wait for an election to replace
the city council. Do you think that will happen? Is that the only solution?

initiative is a good option. qualified voters will eagerly go somewhere to sign it if given a chance.
also could ask a judge to throw out the new franchise as it was against a very recent vote of the people. see if voter intent and actions should be valid for more than 60 days. council needs slapped up side the head by someone with authority.
