Vehrs a refreshing voice

As a retired primary care physician, I have a lot of concern about the current status of our mostly dysfunctional health care system. Because of this concern, I became involved with a local chapter of Health Care for All - Washington, and as a result, I met Lynnette Vehrs.

Since our first meeting about three years ago, I have had the pleasure of working with her on the health care problem, and I had the opportunity to speak to her nursing school class. What most impresses me about Lynnette is not only her dedication to the things that interest her, but her marvelous organizational skills.

She has an amazing capacity to see through to the core of an issue and cut away the chaff. She would be a refreshing addition to our state legislature and would be sure to keep them on task. Please give her your consideration when casting your ballot this fall.

Daniel Schaffer, M.D.
