Day after quitting job, Dr. Einterz joins political panel to attack conservatives

Flyer for “War on Public Health” event

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Former St. Joseph County Health Officer, Dr. Robert Einterz, is participating in a political panel to attack conservatives later this evening. This comes on the first weekday since he left his position as the head of the County Health Department and only days after he claimed he wanted to get politics out of public health. Also on the panel with him is one of his former employees, Health Equity Director Taylor Coats, who stated at a Board of Health meeting earlier this year that she doesn’t “like seeing… white people.”

The event being called "The War on Public Health" is scheduled for 6:00pm in Ballroom A and B at the St. Joseph County Public Library. The flyer for the event states "Local officials are attacking public Health! You are invited to learn more and save public health!" The event just so happens to be sponsored by the NAACP.

While Einterz claims that conservatives have politicized the Health Department, it appears he is either projecting or gaslighting the public. During his tenure as the top doctor in the county, Einterz was responsible for an illegal mask mandate and stretching COVID data to close down churches.

In July of 2021, an RNM investigation discovered Einterz and several Health Board members were breaking Indiana public records laws by holding secret meetings.

During the height of COVID, RNM published a story regarding one of Einterz’ employees stating she wished doctors would deny care to people who did not wear a mask or get the COVID vaccine. It does not appear the employee was ever disciplined for the remarks.

RNM also discovered a scheme in which Einterz was using the health department to attack the businesses of political opponents. This led to a massive lawsuit that is currently ongoing.

Current St. Joseph County Health Equity Director Taylor Coats is also on the panel for tonight's event.

RNM published a story in February in which Coats announced she didn't like seeing white people at a Board of Public Health meeting.

"This is the room and table I like the least." Coats said while referring to the color of everyone's skin. "I don't like seeing this. A bunch of white people sitting around making decisions."

Last week, RNM also discovered Dr. Einterz created Coats' position and is paying her from money out of a Lead Mitigation Grant/Fund -- diverting tens of thousands of dollars from a lead mitigation program, that mainly focuses on preventing lead poisoning in minority children.

Coats was moved into the position from a social worker role in 2021. It appears the appropriation was never approved by the County Council and could potentially be revoked by the elected officials, according to RNM’s sources. Meaning her position could be on the chopping block as she participates in the panel to attack our local elected officials responsible for funding her position.

  1. What exactly is her job description and why should the County continue to employ a proven racist? She doesn’t have to like me because I’m White but I don’t appreciate her attitude when I’m helping to pay her salary. She needs to follow her pal Dr. Einterz out the door and go work for the Democrat Party where people like her are welcome.

  2. Bobby has butthurt. Like the Kenyan POTUS poser once yammered, “elections have consequences”. Republican commissioners👍Republican county council majority👍Now we need to elect Upchurch SB mayor.
