With only 1,124 votes being counted to date, 1,032 or 91.82 percent of those ballots were marked in favor of Coalinga Medical Center LLC. being permitted to rent or even purchase Coalinga Regional Medical Center. The group, headed by Dr. Gurpreet Singh, is poised to pump millions of dollars into the facility and its reopening. This vote was required in order for the group to be able to rent or purchase the hospital because it is publicly owned by the voters in the special Coalinga Regional Hospital District which encompasses more than just the residents of Coalinga.

A free press is one of the most important factors in maintaining a civil and prosperous community. In an era where there is a plethora of information from a million random, (often questionable), sources, it is important to have at least one source that takes verification seriously. My goal is to present the news as it occurs, and based on facts. I make every effort to keep my own emotions and opinions separate from the news. Coalinga Press is a nonprofit endeavor. It was created as part of imaginarium: Institute of Fine Arts, a local 501 (c) (3) nonprofit. I teach music and art both online and in person. I am a proud grandmother of 8 amazing kiddos ranging in age from 16 - 0. I love traveling, playing the piano and guitar, kicking back at the ocean and being lazy.
