Health Care for All

Five people were at the table for the Thursday meeting of the Cascadia Chapter of the Pacific Green Party this week, one of them a candidate in the (alas) Democratic primary for the Oregon state legislature being held in May.

His name is Tom Sincic, and he formerly worked as the head nurse at the Student Health Center in Grant High School while I taught math and physics there. He’s running for the seat vacated by Representative Michael Dembrow, who became state senator due to the death of a sitting senator, and he bases his candidacy on the predominance of the issue of healthcare provided by means of a single-payer system, as opposed to the present system of health care mediated by insurance companies.
