SRHS Retirees Ask for Open Q&A Sessions

Tension continues to rise as Singing River Health System retirees feel as though the Jackson County Board of Supervisors is not taking them seriously.
One supporter of the retirees asked the board if they can hold an open Q&A session with the public at least once a month. This stems from many attendees feeling as if their voice is not being heard and not enough information is being made public.
Some feel there is corruption, deception, and a lack of effort from the supervisors who Singing River Retirees say are supposed to be a representation of the residents. Retiree Irby Tillman said, “They have not really helped us. What has kept us going is this group of people, this group of nurses, this group of hardworking people that go out on that picket line in the heat, in the cold, in the rain, and that’s what’s keeping us alive.”
Supervisors Troy Ross and Melton Harris Jr. spoke out and said they see no problem in holding an open Q&A session with the public.
Attendees hope to hear of an agreed date and time for these monthly meetings as soon as possible.
