June 28, 2017 THE BEACON 45 Library hosts construction truck event By Beth Scott D ale G ress r eal e state Connie Pillich unveils ‘Medicaid-for-All” Ohio health care plan CINCINNATI - Gubernatorial candidate Connie Pillich announced a plan to implement a “public option” in the state to ensure every Ohioan has access to affordable health care. The announcement comes on both the eve of an ex- pected vote in the US Senate on the Republican health care bill that could result in thousands of Ohioans losing health insurance and in the aftermath of insurance companies leaving the state exchanges. “I believe that health care is a right not a privilege,” said Connie Pillich. “Ohioans deserve bold leadership that protects patients, not insurance company profits. My plan grants all Ohio families access to Medicaid and lets them buy into the same health insurance plan that state employees and state lawmakers currently enjoy.” The Connie Pillich plan calls on the state of Ohio to offer two buy-in options on the state exchange.

Medicaid or the state’s health insurance plan at levels equal to the states’ current costs. Because these “public options” would be purchased by consumers, they would be implemented with no cost to taxpayers. “As I tour every county in Ohio as part of my cam- paign’s 88 County Strategy, I’ve heard from voters in Appalachia and rural communities who are worried they are going to lose their health insurance,” she said. “This plan is a promise that, no matter who you are and no matter where in Ohio you live, you and your family can get the quality health care you need.” Connie Pillich is a former state representative, small businesswoman, and former US Air Force Captain run- ning to be Ohio’s next governor in order to bring bold leadership and innovative policy solutions to Columbus.

COSHOCTON – Kids of all ages were excited to see all the construc- tion trucks in the former Central Elementary School lot and the library parking lot on Thursday, June 22. Businesses who had their trucks on display were the county engineer, Capital City, ODOT, Hathaway Inc., Frontier Power, and Smith Construction. “I contacted these construction companies and they couldn’t have been nicer,” said Deborah Crowdy, children’s program coor- dinator at the library. REACT came to help traffic flow in between the library parking lot and the former Central Elementary School lot so that the kids could cross safely. The kids even lined the streets to see the funeral procession of Pvt. Eugene Appleby, an MIA WWII soldier whose remains have recently been returned to the county for burial. “We just wanted to let them know how important our missing in action soldiers are,” said Crowdy. The construction trucks event was part of the “Build A Better World” Summer Reading theme. Both the Coshocton Public Library and the West Lafayette Branch will have events for the summer reading program until it ends on July 22. Mon., Tues., Thurs. & Fri. 7:30am - 5:00pm Wed. 7:30am - 8:00pm • Sat. 7:30am - 4:00pm
