One local woman wants to be heard loud and clear by our Congressional representatives on the issue of health care reform.

Mary Kay Mason is organizing a “mock” town hall meeting to give concerned residents an opportunity to voice their opinions. So far there has been no official town hall meeting in our area.

Mason has contacted Senator Richard Burr and Representative Mike McIntyre to appear at the meeting. They’ll both send statements instead.

“We’re not talking about your car; we’re talking about your life, and your health,” said Mason. “If government controls your health they control you. It’s really frightening because government is really powerful.”

Mason tried to contact Senator Kay Hagan to invite her to the meeting. She was told the request was filed with the senator.
