OVER 70 SENIORS & SENIOR ADVOCATES ENDORSE DOUG THOMPSON

Doug Thompson, candidate for State Representative in the 8 th Essex district, today received the endorsement of over 70 seniors and senior advocates.

 

“Doug is the clear candidate for older and wiser voters. He is the only candidate with two decades of healthcare experience and the skills needed to make healthcare accessible across our Commonwealth”, stated Bob Powell, Co-Chair of Swampscott for All Ages. “Before running for office, Doug led successful efforts to improve Masshealth, lowering costs and increasing access to quality care. Moreover, he is the founder and former CEO of Perfect Health, which provides primary care and mental health services to seniors across six states”, he said.

 

Thompson’s plans for supporting seniors includes: 

* Investing in primary care, geriatric care and mental health care

* Reducing costs of prescription drugs and providing consumer protections for high-cost medications

* Simplifying the administration of healthcare through movement towards a single-payer system

* Developing a Long-term Services and Support program that will enable moderate-income people to afford long-term care. 

 

Doug previously served as the Chief Financial Officer of MassHealth, managing a budget of $8.5 billion through the entire legislative process multiple times.  His work has helped 5,000 people and saved taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars.

Hi Friend,
We are proud to support Doug Thompson in his campaign for State Representative. As
we all know, healthcare becomes more important as we grow older and wiser. Doug is
the only candidate with two decades of healthcare experience and the skills
needed to make healthcare accessible across our Commonwealth. Before running
for office, Doug led successful efforts to improve Masshealth, lowering costs and
increasing access to quality care. Moreover, he is the founder and former CEO of
Perfect Health, which provides primary care and mental health services to seniors
across six states.


Right now, we must elect a leader who will fight to improve our healthcare system and
make it more affordable. As our next State Representative, Doug will fight to:


 Invest in primary care, geriatric care and mental health care
 Reduce the costs of prescription drugs and provide consumer protections for
high-cost medications
 Simplify the administration of healthcare through movement towards a single-
payer system
 Develop a Long-term Services and Support program that will enable moderate-
income people to afford long-term care.
Doug released a comprehensive healthcare plan, and is the only candidate to do so.
