Town Hall Meeting — Monday, May 7

I hope you can join me for my upcoming town hall meeting covering the Legislature’s latest attempt to strip access to health care for Medicaid recipients on Monday, May 7, at 6 p.m. at the Riverside Arts Center Gallery, 76 N. Huron St. in Ypsilanti. I will be joined by special guest Emily Schwarzkopf from the Michigan League for Public Policy. Come get the facts behind this legislation, including:

  • Who will be affected
  • Why it is being rushed through the Legislature
  • How this will impact our seniors and people with disabilities
  • The myth that Medicaid recipients don’t work (the majority do)
  • The fact that this legislation will drain taxpayer dollars, not save them: the estimated cost of this legislation is between $20-30 million annually

I am opposed to this legislation, which would endanger the health coverage that hundreds of thousands of Michiganders need to live meaningful and productive lives, and I hope you can join us in discussing the truth behind this callous bill.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact my office at (517) 373-1771, or email me at You can also visit my website at to learn about what I have been working on in Lansing and when my upcoming coffee hours will be.
