The Anniston City Council met tonight to discuss the future of the Northeast Alabama Regional Medical Center board. The city council voted to remove RMC board chairman Greg Kernion on a 4 to 1 vote. Ward 2 Councilman David Reddick gave the only dissenting vote on Kernion’s dismissal. R-M-C employee Dr. Terry Phillis says he has been with the hospital for 2 years and believes that tonight’s actions by the council shows a lack of respect for the city. The council voted to replace Kernion with a 4 person vote. Councilman Reddick abstained when the council suggested a replacement. Reddick says that tonight’s special called meeting and the vote raises more questions than it answered. The Anniston City Council voted to replace Kernion with Paula Watkins.
