Ridgewood Referendum - Let Us Vote
The Racine County Board of Supervisors is considering the sale of Ridgewood Care Facility - the county's only public nursing home - to a for-profit business.
A decision of this importance should be decided by voters through an advisory referendum placed on the ballot.
Racine County residents should be allowed to vote on the sale of Ridgewood Care Facility. We ask every Racine County Board Supervisor to vote "YES" to place the proposed advisory referendum question on the spring ballot in April, 2017.
Proposed referendum question:
“Shall the County of Racine continue to own its skilled nursing facility, Ridgewood Care Center, as an important public resource that should be included as part of the annual budget of the County of Racine?”
Let the people vote.
