HCHR Leaders Testify to House Healthcare Committee

20+ people showed up in a blizzard to deliver testimony from the campaign to the House Healthcare Committee. Danny Bodreau (chief steward for the nurses union at Rutland hospital), Mari Cordes, Peg Franzen and David Kreindler presented the testimony to the Committee. Pink slips from the Sgt-at-arms calls were flowing steady the entire time. Great job everybody!
