HOLY MOLLY! Over a half a million dollars a year to operate a business that looses millions of dollars every year? That does NOT make sense! How about giving her a percentage of the profits, a commission?

I hope my tax dollars aren’t wasted on her salary! Why not take some of that money and fix the phone system at cch?

Disgusting! Isn't CCMH losing money? Why do you reward incompetence?

How does she manage to put food on the table? (That was sarcasm, just in case you didn't get it)

I'd be happy to fly it into the ground for half the money. Maybe the CEO gets paid for terrible billing and Medicare fraud. In that light, I suppose she's earned it.
