      I told you, Dr. Peterson. She is the doctor in charge of West Campus.

        Ha, she is not in charge of the west campus. She does pain management, and is horrible at her job. And she is also a cu nt. Which come as no surprise considering the blob of feces she is married to.

          She was the only doctor I saw when I was there. Agreed, the nurses do all the work.

    who the heck cares what his wife’s name is? Boozemeyer is the one we should be voting out. I feel sorry for his wife as she has to put up with this moron. maybe she likes the drunk. OTIS Cambell had a wife for years.

    How much did Eric or his wife donate to Bumsteads reelection campaign? Political payback I bet.

    The Book is padding his resume and packing his bags. His days as Mayor are numbered and he might need to look for a real job one of these day. Unless the Mrs. continues to put up with his drunken ego.

      According to this Bookmeyer is not qualified to be on this board. He has no skills.

        His appointment is so wrong on so many levels. Yet, an application must have been sent in. But, who else stepped up to the plate? To replace what’s wrong, there has to be someone willing to step up. This is a further slap in the face to Mason City from Branstad.
