Advocates Will Be Talking Health Care On Town Meeting Day

VPR News – On Town Meeting Day, citizens will be gathering to talk elect officials and vote on school and municipal budgets directly related to their towns and cities. But the Vermont Workers’ Center is also hoping to talk about an issue that affects everyone in the state, health care.

As Vermont considers major changes to its health care system, the Health Care is a Human Right Campaign will be sending people to town meetings to spark the discussion.

Cindy Perron is a photographer living in Barton, she’ll be attending her town meeting and she speaks with VPR’s Mitch Wertlieb.

Town Meeting Day (March 1, 2011) is a public holiday on which residents meet in about 40 towns across Vermont. They discuss the business of their town and any issue is open to debate.
