Save Our Health Care Rally: Local progressives led by Indivisible Flagler are holding a rally to protect the Affordable Care Act from repeal, as proposed in a GOP bill currently trying to win enough support for passage before the July 4 recess. The rally is from noon to 1 p.m. at the northwest corner of State Road 100 in front of Florida Hospital Flagler’s entrance in Palm Coast. A statement from Indivisible’s Diana Becker-LeBrun: “Now that we’ve seen the Senate TrumpCare bill, Americans should ask themselves one simple question: Would this bill harm my family? Unless you are a giant corporation or super wealthy, the answer is clearly yes. The Senate bill keeps the same harmful effects of the House version–it rips coverage away from millions of Americans, eliminates protections for Americans with pre-existing conditions, and increases costs for middle-class families.”
Local Mitigation Strategy Meeting: The Emergency Management staff is holding its multi-jurisdictional quarterly Local Mitigation Strategy public meeting to discuss grant funding, ongoing project progress and updates to Community Rating System program implementation efforts. Anybody interested in attending the meeting or wishing to learn more about mitigation is encouraged to attend or contact the county’s mitigation planner. 1:30 p.m. at Emergency Operations Center 1769 E.

To make reservations please call 386-439-5003.
