May 29, 2023 | Political News

Hamilton County commissioners voted down a proposal from Mayor Weston Wamp that would have diverted $250,000 of unused funding from the Health Department to support medical services by Clínica Médicos.

By a vote of 7-4, Commissioners defeated the proposal, with most complaining they did not have enough time to consider it.

Voting against were Commissioners Steve Highlander, Chip Baker, Jeff Eversole, David Sharpe, Warren Mackey, Ken Smith, and Lee Helton.

Voting in favor were Commissioners Greg Beck, Joe Graham, Mike Chauncey, and Gene-O Shipley.
