Local group plans support of health care reform

About 35 people attended a recent meeting in support of the Organizing for America program on health care reform. The organization says that it is working to support health care for all Americans.

Paul Choi, Western North Carolina Regional Director of Organizing for America, came from Asheville to inform the group of the latest actions in Congress on health care reform.

He also offered advice on forming a local telephone call program to encourage residents to call their representatives in Congress. Choi also explained how to sign up for his email letters to stay up to date on current health care actions.

The group will meet again January 25; watch the paper for the time and place. For more information or to volunteer, call Betty Garniss at 828-859-7654.
