U.S. House candidate Tritch plans town hall on health care

BRIAN FRANCISCO | The Journal Gazette

Courtney Tritch, who seeks the Democratic nomination for northeast Indiana's seat in the U.S. House, has announced she will have a town hall meeting Thursday on the future of health care.

The public event will be at 6 p.m. at CS3, 1915 S. Calhoun St., Fort Wayne. Panelists will be pediatrician Dr. Tony GiaQuinta, ophthalmologist Dr. Jonathan Walker and obstetrician/gynecologist Dr. Kay Johnson-Keys, the Wells County health officer.

"We need people who understand the system best to weigh in on the best path forward,” Tritch said in a statement.

She said the panelists are not endorsing her congressional campaign and that she is not endorsing ideas they might present. She said the purpose of the town hall meeting is to have a constructive conversation about health care before she announces her position on health care policy.

Tritch seeks the Democratic nomination for the seat of Rep. Jim Banks, R-3rd. Other announced or filed candidates for the Democratic nomination are David Roach, John Roberson and Tommy Schrader.
