Adams Health and Rehab to host voter rallyPublished 9:04am Saturday, September 8, 2012
The Sept. 18 amendment vote will see more support when Adams Health and Rehab hosts a voter rally Sept. 12.
“We want to help educate the community on how important it is to vote YES,” said Myra Abrams.
The amendment, which would transfer money from the Alabama Trust Fund to the General fund to bolster Medicaid, will have a great affect on nursing homes, and Abrams said that is only part of the message they hope to drive home to people.
“It’s going to affect more people than they realize,” Abrams said. “Even those who aren’t Medicaid recipients, they could still be affected.”
Abrams said they will be explaining how a failed vote will impact jobs across the state.
The rally, which will be from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., is free and open to the public and will include hotdogs, chips, lemonade and live entertainment, as well as literature informing people about the effects of the vote.
