Let’s Keep Dr. Bill On The Road Making House Calls
By Donna Smith, Executive Director – Progressive Democrats of America
There’s a good chance you have met or been on a call with Progressive Democrats of America (PDA)’s Dr. Bill Honigman. He’s part of our national staff, co-coordinates our California chapter, and is often the face and voice of PDA via numerous radio and television appearances. You might not know that he’s also PDA’s roving ambassador for Improved Medicare for All, constantly making presentations across the country as Co-Chair of our Healthcare Is A Human Right issue team.
Dr. Bill has had a crazy travel schedule recently, and we’re committed to covering his expenses so he doesn’t go broke getting out the word on Improved Medicare for All.
Over the last few weeks, he traveled from his home in Orange County and gave a talk for Health Care For All Marin. Then, he stayed over to attend a luncheon the next day with Physicians for a National Health Program (PNHP) Marin. Then he went back to the O.C. for his County Committee meeting. After that, he went back to the Bay area for another presentation at the PDA San Francisco Chapter meeting, then he made a presentation in Orange, CA, then went back to Oakland for the California Single Payer meeting.
Whew! There’s no doubt that Dr. Bill puts his heart, soul, and shoe leather into making sure we enact Improved Medicare For All. Let’s have his back. Will you help? We’re trying to raise $1,000 today to cover these travel expenses—discount air fare and a sandwich or two along the way—and to set aside some funds to cover his travel to future events. Please pitch in whatever you can afford, and if you can, please make it an automatic monthly gift.
We’d like to raise enough to send Dr. Bill to do a Medicare For All house call near you!
Thanks so much for anything you do to help.
