Elizabeth Roberts Won’t Stop Talking About Health Care

And why should she, really? The more I read, the more frightened I get. The news yesterday was that as the baby boomers are hitting 65, our already failing health care system is becoming totally swamped. So what’s a future-minded Lt. Governor to do? Why, hold a series a community meetings, of course!

Elizabeth Roberts is doing 16 meetings (holy cow, that’s a lot of meetings) across the state in order to get more people involved in the process of reforming health care in Rhode Island. Ours here in Cranston is next Monday, April 21st, at the Main branch of the library on Sockanosset Cross Road. All meetings will be held at 6:30 pm.

One thought on “Elizabeth Roberts Won’t Stop Talking About Health Care

  1. Of competing interest on Monday, April 21st, is the school committee’s meeting for parents to learn more about the schools’ budget crisis and how it will impact our kids. But if you have already found out about this through your PTO or other means, then you might want to forgo, and save your help-the-schools time for the city council meeting on the 22nd, when parents really need to push for more funding.
