Vigil for the Portage County Health Care Center-with Meleesa Johnson

On Friday April first, 2022, a vigil was held in Stevens Point, WI, outside of the Portage County Health Care Center in support of a “Yes” vote for the referendum to retain County ownership of the Center on the local election ballot on April 5th, 2022. The Referendum is to raise County tax levy to allow for the County to retain, and to build a better, new skilled nursing facility. Outgoing County Board Supervisor Meleesa Johnson, who chaired the Health Care Center Committee these past four years, gives an overview of the future of the Center if the Referendum succeeds on April 5th.
