Hometown Hospital Homestretch Tour: Healthcare for All Mainers!
Portland, Maine — During the final four days of her gubernatorial campaign, Pat LaMarche will focus attention where it belongs: on the healthcare needs of every Mainer. Starting in Rumford, Maine, Pat will visit small rural towns with hospitals in 34 towns to emphasize her support for universal heath care and tax relief for all Maine people.
"This Tour reminds us that universal healthcare will do more than improve the quality of health for Mainers across the entire state. It will lower taxes, improve the economy, and make sure that no senior will have to choose between medicine and heating oil this winter."
— Pat LaMarche
After a rally in Portland's Monument Square on Sunday at 1:30 PM, she will wind up at a 2:00 PM Monday afternoon rally in Bangor, the town where she grew up and the future site of Maine's first medical school.
From Presque Isle to Poland, Calais, Fort Kent, Machais, Damariscotta, Blue Hill, Ellsworth, Boothbay, Biddeford, Bridgeton, Bangor and every town in between, LaMarche's "Medical Marathon" will also bring the focus back to the people in northern Maine, rural Maine, and the places where new leadership in the Blaine House will make a huge difference in their lives.
"This Tour reminds us that universal healthcare will do more than improve the quality of health for Mainers across the entire state," said LaMarche. "It will lower taxes, improve the economy, and make sure that no senior will have to choose between medicine and heating oil this winter."
