Government shouldn't impede community growth

What has happened to free enterprise? Kahtnu Ventures wants to build an 8,300 square foot Ambulatory Surgery Center here in Kenai. CPGH is opposing this stating it stands to loose $20 million a year if this center is allowed to be built. Sorry about your luck. I'm pretty sure AIH or Spenard Lumber didn't have the Borough Assembly backing them when Home Depot decided to come to town. Did Carrs, Country Foods or Echo Lake have the assemby standing shoulder to shoulder with them when Walmart came here with their grocery and meat departments? NO! It is called "Competitive Business." I believe, correct me if I am wrong, that the the assembly has endorsed a 50,000 square foot wellness center in old town Kenai. Isn't that going to affect CPGH's bottom line? Why are we not having public hearings about that? I am all for free enterprise and competition, what I am not for is any governmental entity be it state or local with such a conflict of interest using its position to impede the growth of our community.
