Medicaid expansion explained in town forum

To the editor:

I write to encourage members of our community to take advantage of an upcoming Town Hall-styler meeting on Question 2: Medicaid Expansion.

This free community event will be held on Sunday, Oct. 22, 1 to 2 p.m. at the South Portland Community Center.

A panel of presenters will include speakers in favor of and opposed to the initiative on the November ballot, as well as an independent health policy analyst.

Their presentations will be followed by Q & A and discussion, which welcomes all participants, moderated by South Portland’s own former high school principal, Jeanne Crocker.

The event will be video recorded for later broadcast on SPTV, with a goal of informing and engaging a wider circle of our community members in this ballot issue in particular, and in community and political affairs in general.

Together, we can make our community and our democracy stronger and better.

Andrea Thompson McCall South Portland
