An Open Letter To Newaygo County Republicans:
Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Carol Newth. My family has had a home on Pickerel Lake since 1948. I have been a lifelong Republican. In fact, I was a Goldwater Girl, and I even met Reagan.
I share my history with you so that hopefully you will understand that I am not some liberal elite, but a conservative. My hope is that you will keep an open mind about why I am supporting Dr. Rob Davidson to be our 2nd District US Representative.
He is a one of us, a local, ER Doctor at Gerber Hospital. I first heard Dr. Rob speak during the Town Hall in Baldwin. I was impressed with the way he “schooled” our current Representative, Bill Huizenga. He politely and factually explained “health care” to Mr. Huizenga, and in the process he also taught me.
I am of an age to be fully enrolled with Medicare. As a self-employed, retired Realtor I had always been forced to pay for very expensive insurance. Transitioning to Medicare was a revelation and has allowed me to reevaluate all my previous conceptions of medical care and insurance.
Dr. Rob is a supporter of Medicare type coverage for all. As a fiscal conservative, I strongly feel that you have to “pay” for what you want and what is important. Bottom line; healthy people provide better for themselves than sick people. If a healthy population is not a moral imperative, then it should at least make sense to you in dollars and cents.
Please come listen to Dr. Rob Davidson explain his vision and goals for our District. He will be here on August 23erd, at the Gerber Union Hall at 6:00 pm. He’s worth listening to, regardless of your political persuasion.
