Knowles is the Governor needed
By Terry Gardiner
November 04, 2006
Since my retirement from the seafood industry two years ago I
have been studying and working with several non-profit groups
on health care reform in our country. I have been working as
a full time volunteer since August for Tony Knowles because
he is committed to making health care reform a priority in Alaska
and our country. His plans to improve Alaska health care can
be found at his website www.tonyknowles.com.
Many health care advocates and concerned Alaskans are on the
Knowles team because they believe this is a good plan to get
Alaska moving on health care reform.
Our health care costs are rapidly inflating and are double that
of other countries. The ranks of the 120,000 Alaskans with no
health care insurance are rapidly expanding. 70% of our small
businesses can no longer afford health care insurance. Alaskans
on medicare increasingly cannot find doctors. Our system is
broken and it's time for our leaders to stand up and LEAD on
health care reform.
If you are concerned about health care issues and want to see
action, Tony Knowles is the Governor you need.
PS Tony understands the ferry system problems in SE and fortunately
that is considerably easier to fix!
