Eastern Oregon is like the rest of the state and the nation. We care about health care for everyone. Will it be there when we need it, will it be complicated to obtain, can we afford it? These are some of the questions people are asking — especially “can we afford it?”
People in La Grande showed their support for health care reform April 27 when they came out in pouring rain and a power outage to gather in McKenzie Theatre for the George Mann Benefit Concert. Colton Haney was a wonderful emcee. Steve Hines and Friends were spectacular. Mann met and exceeded expectations as he sang for health care reform in Oregon and across the nation.
