Mike Ross Town Hall: Friday, August 14, Arkadelphia, AR

Mike Ross has just announced that he will be holding a health care Town Hall this Friday, August 14, at 2pm in Arkadelphia, AR. Arkadelphia is about 60 miles southwest of Little Rock.

Twenty percent of Mike Ross’s district lives in poverty, 21.8% are uninsured, and nearly a quarter are African American. Yet Mike Ross boasts about holding health care reform "hostage," insuring that medical costs stay high and that fewer people are covered, and protecting insurance company profits while people in his district suffer.

No Arkansas candidate for Senate or Congress was opposed by the other major party in the 2008 election. The only opposition came from the Arkansas Greens. The Greens were removed from the ballot by the state in 2008, and have announced that they will sue. If anyone is interested in challenging Ross, let us know.

Ross will also hold two telephone town halls: one on Thursday, August 13 at 7:10 pm, and the other on Thursday, August 27 at 7:10 pm.

If you are interested in going to the event, or want to help phone bank and organize turnout, let us know here.
