Monday, April 9th, 2007 at 12:00 pm in Arnold Schwarzenegger, General, Jerry McNerney, U.S. House.
Rep. Jerry McNerney, D-Pleasanton, seems determined not only to represent his constituents, but to meet and hear every single darned one of ’em.
He’s been holding “Congress At Your Corner” sessions around his district, perching in community centers, grocery stores and what have you in order to meet the masses. Then, last week, he convened a small-business advisory panel that he says he’ll consult periodically.
And this afternoon, he’ll convene a healthcare advisory board in a Brentwood Police Department meeting room for a discussion on the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP), Medicare Part D and prescription drug plans, MediCal, and Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s proposed health care plan. This panel’s members include:
Aida Bruun, RN & BSN, San Ramon
Sue Compton, associate executive director and RN, Axis Community Health, Pleasanton
Dr. Terry Lightfoot, Kaiser Manteca Medical Center
Michael Kirkpatrick, CEO, Community Medical Centers, Stockton
Mark Lisa, CEO, Doctors Hospital of Manteca
Jose Posadas, Armed Forces Emergency Services & International Services specialist, American Red Cross of Santa Clara Valley
Andy Prokop, president & CEO, United Way of San Joaquin County, Stockton
Scot Sinclair, executive director, O’Connor Woods, Stockton
Dr. William Walker, director, Contra Costa Health Services
