LWV-GCV meeting and discussion of healthcare in Wisconsin

Our apologies for the video quality on this one - the internet connection from the Judicial Center was not as stable as it could be.

The League of Women Voters of the Greater Chippewa Valley will hold a meeting on Wisconsin Health on Nov. 17 at 7 PM in the  Dunn County Judicial Center at 815 Stokke Pkwy, Menomonie.  This will also be a general meeting of the local league.  If you cannot attend in person this meeting will be live streamed on this page.

According to the press release from the league 

This is a community meeting to discuss the issue of single payer healthcare for all. Dr. Laurel Mark, MD, from Madison and co-president of Wisconsin PNHR (Physicians for National Healthcare Reform) will keynote the discussion. Representative Clint Moses has accepted our invitation to comment afterward. We are also seeking participation from medical clinic and insurance perspectives.

The meeting is intended to inform and educate all of us about the state of our healthcare and explore some solutions together. Dunn County residents narrowly passed a referendum on healthcare for all in the recent midterm elections, by a vote of 9,049 yes and 8,564 no. The League of Women Voters does not have a position on single payer healthcare and remains non-partisan on candidates.

In addition, a short business meeting will be conducted after the forum. Please find the agenda below for our General meeting for more details.  The minutes from our last General meeting, held August 25, 2022 and the YTD Treasurers Report (July, 2022 through September, 2022) are also available for download.

We are looking forward to seeing you on Nov 17th!
