The latest in a series of posts on City government
The resolution to support the Medicare for All Act was one of the reasons Town Hall was packed for the City Council meeting last Wednesday night. Gadfly will spend 2-3 posts providing an overview of this resolution, which passed unanimously.
“This resolution is not about answering every question about how these programs are going to work. . . . We can’t continue to say people aren’t ready for a conversation. . . . This is a vote about understanding the magnitude of the issue, it’s a vote about showing the courage about where we’re going to go. . . . We need these conversations. . . . It’s about showing not just our leaders in Washington but also our community. . . . It’s about who we are as a city, about who we want to be, and about how we want to serve the citizens of Bethlehem.”
