Sinyard speaks out on Phoebe connection

May 3, 2006

Albany -- Dougherty County Commission Chairman Jeff Sinyard says his business ties with Phoebe Putney Hospital don't affect his service to the community.

Sinyard's political opponent, John Burr, says Phoebe influences Sinyard's decisions on issues related to the hospital and health care costs.

Sinyard admits Phoebe does business with his company, Adams Exterminating, and that hospital staffers have donated money to his campaign, but he says that has no influence on his service on the commission.

"Whether the money comes from corporate America or from the smallest person who's a good friend of my family, we're going to do the right thing," said Sinyard. "No contribution will change the way I do business, and no contribution will take me place that would not be respectful to all Dougherty County citizens."

Yesterday, Burr vowed not to do business with Phoebe.
