Somers good for health care, small business

State Sen. Heather Somers has worked hard for the residents of the 18th District. During the pandemic, she has been a tenacious advocate for policies that are keeping us safe and minimizing the spread of COVID-19 while letting us move forward with our lives.

As a longtime optometric doctor, I have seen how Sen. Somers has advocated for funding of key healthcare programs like Medicaid and Husky, as well as guiding small businesses to access the important CARES Act for paycheck protection funding. Her efforts are helping us keep our heads above water in this difficult time.

I commend Senator Somers for her good work on behalf of the residents of the eight towns within the district.

Marc Kallinen, D.O.
