U.S. Rep. Peter Welch – a strong public option guy for national health care reform – announced Thursday that he will hold two more town hall meetings on the issue later this month.
Here's what his e-mail to supporters said:
Following a summer of discussions with Vermonters about reforming the nation’s health care system, Rep. Welch held four regional Telephone Town Hall meetings last month about this and other issues. In total, the regional meetings with residents of the Northeast Kingdom and Franklin, Bennington and Rutland counties, drew more than a thousand participants.
This month, Rep. Welch will hold two statewide forums focused specifically on health care reform legislation. His “Congressional Forums on Health Care” in Williston and White River Junction will provide yet another opportunity for Vermonters to weigh in on this critical legislation.
The locations and times for these events are:
Saturday, October 10 – 10 a.m.
Williston Central School
195 Central School Drive, Williston
Saturday, October 17 – 3:30 p.m.
Hartford High School
73 Highland Avenue, White River Jct.
