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
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. Ohio
residents would be able to purchase health care from

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.

Library’s construction truck event.
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.
