    Town Hall Meetings to Discuss JPS Bond Program

    Dear Constituents:

    Tarrant County Hospital District (aka John Peter Smith Hospital Network – “JPS”) would like to issue an $809 million dollar bond package. In keeping with my commitment to transparency and prior to the vote at Commissioner’s Court to call for a November bond election, I would like to get your insight on this hospital bond initiative.  You can review the particulars on the bond package here.

    JPS and I will be holding public hearings on Tuesday, July 21 from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m. at the Arlington Subcourthouse located at 700 E. Abram St., and on Wednesday, July 22 from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m. at the Mansfield City Hall in the City Council Chamber located at 1200 E. Broad St. (There are additional meetings scheduled around the county.) Translation services will be available for our Spanish- and Vietnamese-speaking constituents.

    It’s your turn to let us know what you think. This is your county, this is your hospital district and this is your money.  What are we doing right? What needs to be improved? Where are the gaps and how can we fix them? We need you to join us and give us your feedback!

    Please share this information with your friends and family.

    Warm regards,
