RECAP: McMorris Rodgers’ Friday in Spokane

SPOKANE, WA (April 14, 2017) – Today, Eastern Washington Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) spent the day in Spokane meeting with and hearing from local community leaders.

She began the day attending the Greater Spokane Incorporated “Let Freedom Ring Breakfast” to honor military men and women from our community who serve and protect the freedoms we enjoy every day. She offered remarks to thank those in attendance for their service and for all they do, day in and day out, to keep our country safe and free.

Later in the morning, the Congresswoman hosted another Coffee with Cathy event to meet with people who reached and and wanted to voice their thoughts and concerns on a variety of issues. This is part of her continued effort to connect directly with folks in Eastern Washington, in a format to hear their thoughts, concerns, and questions in a productive fashion.

Rep. McMorris Rodgers finished her morning by meeting with the Better Health Together Board to discuss their work on transformative Medicaid programs in Washington state. The Congresswoman is focused on how to create a 21st Century health care system that will provide quality and affordable health care to all Americans.
