Louis Meyers, M.D.

A Voice of Experience in Healthcare

Louis Meyers for State Senate

Over the past year I have met thousands of you in neighborhoods throughout our community. I want to thank all those who took the time to share with me their ideas and concerns about the issues facing us here in Vermont. If elected, I will work hard on each of those issues.

In particular, I will use my 25 years of experience as a physician to safeguard the health of Vermonters and advocate for a healthcare system that does NOT include further expensive and overbearing monopolization by the University of Vermont.

I will use common sense and frugality to chip away at the high cost of living which is driving people from their homes.

I will support the teachers who keep our schools strong and the nurses who keep our hospitals safe.

And perhaps most importantly, I will continue to listen to the many different voices in our community and encourage others to do the same. For it is only in listening and supporting each other - rather than yelling - that we can truly show the rest of the country just how strong our small state can be.

After 25 years as a physician I know all too well the increasing pressures health care workers face every day as they care for their patients. Clinical decisions are being made in corporate boardrooms with little input from those on the front lines. Many hours each day are wasted on meaningless computer tasks instead of direct patient care. Some of our best clinicians are reducing their hours or leaving the field altogether out of deep frustration at not being allowed to do what they do best - which is to help people heal.

This is unacceptable, and is one of the most important reasons I am running for the state senate. If I am elected, those who work in health care - and their patients - will have a strong voice and representation in ALL future health care debates.

Let’s take back health care from those corporate boardrooms and let’s build a future for Vermont we can all be proud of.

I welcome your comments.
