Don't let the Mayor and City Manager silence your Board of Health

This petition had 20 supporters

The Board of Health for the City of Lubbock is charged with protecting and promoting the public health and safety of our community and its citizens. Represented on the board are experts in the field of Public Health and recognized national leaders who understand the issues that represent clear and present dangers to each of us.

The City Manager and City Attorney have denied and crippled the ability of the Board to openly review and discuss issues of the medical management of mass casualty events. They will not allow agenda items that include presentations on these issues, thus creating a situation where the city is not prepared for such events based on the national standards used throughout the country.

This interference in what is the clear mission of the Board represents an unacceptable action that places every man, woman and child in this community in greater danger from lack of preparation. We, members of the Board of Health, are asking for your support in submitting this petition to the Mayor and City Council seeking their support in enabling us to talk about these issues and not be burdened with needless political posturing that a few believe is in their best interests.
