  • If the city and county wouldn’t have been discriminating against the east side of Gainesville for the past umpteen years, rescue services wouldn’t have had to drive halfway across Gainesville for emergency services.

    How’s that hypocrisy working for you? Keep on believing…

      • Yes genius there is but they are ill-equiped to provide trauma services an ER can provide.

        If you drive down Archer or Newberry Roads there are numerous ER facilities. Have you ever wondered why the westward expansion by NFRMC and Shands has been happening? Or why the city decided to put a unit on it’s western fringe? Let me help you out with that …$$$$$.

        How long has current leadership been in power? A L O N G time. Yet they just woke last year?

        Sure they did…keep believing.
