Town Meeting on Health Care - Peacham, VT

In one of the largest Northeast Kingdom political meetings in recent years, some 600 people – most of them supporting major health care reform – crowded into a Congregational church yesterday in this small Northeast Kingdom community for a town meeting hosted by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).

Saying public interest in the issue was “remarkable,” Sanders told the audience that out of the more than 400 town meetings he has held since elected to Congress he had “never quite seen the kind of turnout at a small town like Peacham.”
