Want to know what kind of guy Rockport's owner is?
I was going to call Partnership and Rockport with the following questions but then I thought, why not ask them both to respond here online so the public can get some answers.
Rockport was quoted by another media source as saying the offer Partnership made was "untenable."
Untenabke according to who? Rockport?
What did Partnership offer?
First proposal by Rockfort denied by California Department of Health . Second proposal a go.
This is a theory shared by a regular reader and someone serving the public:
"Rockports get authorization from the state to pull out. They claim they've lost $5 million when they actually made $5 million. Then at the 11th hour they put out a Press release saying that partnership needs to step up. In other words they are threatening them to extort money with the community in the middle. Meanwhile, partnership said they offered to take over the facilities when Rockport said they would happily hand them over, but the price was "untenable". The key to the story is what those prices were. If they offered up the building for $150,000 each, I think one could argue that was reasonable for partnership to pay. My suspicion is that they wanted millions for them, and they only wanted that because they wanted to set a price that partnership couldn't pay. Extend the extortion. If they were truly willing to walk away, they would sell the buildings at the assessed value."
"Rockport has big bucks in the bank on the back of this community and partnership has big bucks in the bank on the back of this community. And we are helplessly in the middle."
