On behalf of the East Umatilla County Health District, which will become the East Umatilla County Ambulance Area Health District (EUCAAHD), current board members, Holly Mays, Jeremy Lasater, Vickie Jackson, Elizabeth McIntyre; the new board members, Chrys Wernlund, Jan Reitz; former EUCHD administrator Mark Moore, new administrator Gary Woodson and the Friends of the Ambulance Board, we’d like to thank community members of Weston, Adams, Helix, Athena and those living on Weston Mountain who passed ballot measures 30-120 and 30-122.

We’d like to extend a special thank you to Erica Lasater for her amazing graphic arts skills. Thank you to Eric Sederberg for allowing Friends to put a reader board on his property in Adams, advertising the measures. Thank you to Ray Denny for bringing reader boards to Adams and Athena and to the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation for allowing Friends to use the portable reader boards. Thank you to all those people who allowed Friends to put signs in their yards.

The passage of these ballot measures will allow for 24/7 service from the ambulance and personnel, ensuring timely and consistent care that will be available for years to come. Our communities are forever grateful that voters have considered not only the imperative needs of the district, but also the future look and feel of east Umatilla County. We look forward to serving our communities and for the positive changes coming our way in 2017 and beyond. Thank you!

The East Umatilla County Health District Board
