Ellsworth sets second conference call

Wednesday, August 26, 2009

Indiana 8th District Congressman Brad Ellsworth (D-Evansville) announced he will host a second telephone conference call to discuss health care reform with district constituents.

The call will take place at 1 p.m. Eastern Time, Friday, Sept. 4.

In order to comply with the state's automatic dial laws, constituents who wish to participate must signup at the 8th District Online Office at www.ellsworth.house.gov.

This past weekend, 325 Hoosiers from the district participated in a similar discussion, asking questions and exchanging ideas about reforming the nation's health care system.

The second telephone discussion is a continuation of Ellsworth's efforts to seek input from 8th District Hoosiers on health care reform proposals being considered in Congress.

During the current debate on health care reform, the second-term Congressman has received nearly 20,000 contacts from 8th District constituents.

Ellsworth and his staff have met with more than 675 constituents in one-on-one meetings, roundtable discussions, the telephone town hall and other public events.

In addition, Ellsworth has received more than 11,000 letters, e-mails and phone calls on health care reform from constituents and 7,400 Hoosiers have completed his available online health care survey.

For more information on health care reform or to take the online survey, 8th District constituents may visit www.ellsworth.house.gov, and click on Understanding Health Care Reform.
