LEWISTON, Maine — Maine’s 2nd District U.S. Rep. Mike Michaud will hold a telephone town hall on health care reform beginning at 7:10 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 26.

This will be the second telephone town hall held by Michaud on health care reform. Nearly 2,000 Mainers participated in the first call that was held July 20.

“As I travel around the state and hear directly from Mainers about health care, it’s clear that people want reform done right,” Michaud said in a press release Monday. “Having this month to hear directly from Mainers has been extremely beneficial. The people that I’ve met with have real concerns that I will take back to Washington with me as Congress continues to work on crafting a health care reform bill. This week’s telephone town hall will provide another great opportunity for me to hear directly from Mainers.”

People wishing to participate in the telephone town hall may call 877-269-7289 (PIN to enter the call is 14635) at 7:10 p.m. Wednesday. Information on the call, as well as additional information on health care reform, has been posted on Michaud’s Web site at www.michaud.house.gov.

“I look forward to hearing from Mainers,” Michaud said. “I will continue to update my Web site with the most up-to-date information available as the debate on health care moves forward.”
