What benefits and problems do you see regarding the coming Swedish Medical Center campus?
All benefit — no drawbacks. In addition to the facility and 170 hospital beds, it will draw more medical and care providers to the community.
Fred Nystrom, Issaquah
I see only benefits from the arrival of a hospital within easy reach of most of Issaquah.

How can the city best spend tourism tax dollars?
Reinvest in things that attract conscientious tourism — not simply more traffic. The chamber of commerce probably has tons of specific recommendations.
Mark Bowers, Issaquah
Pay down our debt so citizens are not taxed so much.
Bryan Weinstein, Issaquah
Why should they spend any? What is wrong with saving tax dollars?
Ken Sessler, Issaquah
I would like to see tourism tax dollars used to fund things that make Issaquah beautiful, such as the Christmas tree lights and holiday decorations, as well as hanging the flower baskets again in the summer. I really missed those this year.
