injustice in health care is the most shocking and inhumane."

Circleville Pumpkin Parade

(L-R) Marilyn Webster, Bob Krasen, Dr. Brad Cotton, Arlene Sheak and Kurt Bateman gathered for participation in the Pumpkin Show Parade, to “wave the flag” for Medicare for All!

Bob Krasen doing his part

Bob stood in the back of Brad Cotton’s pick-up truck holding Medicare for All signs and waving to the crowd. There were 80,000 people in attendance, and many of them gave us a big thumbs-up!

Marilyn Webster participated with gusto!

About every 1/8 of mile along the route, someone on a loud speaker introduced us to the crowd and told what Medicare for All is all about. Really neat!
