Mainers for Health Care, the coalition that supporting a “Yes” vote on Question 2, officially launched the campaign to expand health care to 70,000 Mainers at events in Bangor and Lewiston.
The following video was recorded by KVO at the launch in Lewiston.
“Question 2 will make Maine’s health care system fairer and strengthen the state’s economy,” said Robyn Merrill, the executive director of Maine Equal Justice Partners and co-chair of the Mainers for Health Care steering committee. “A ‘Yes’ vote will provide health insurance to 70,000 Mainers while also helping hospitals and clinics, particularly in rural parts of the state.”
KVO has endorsed Question 2 and has partnered with the Mainers for Health Care campaign, with community events planned for later this fall in Kennebec County.
