Pass legislation to lower drug prices
I am an older American, and I want my members of Congress to address skyrocketing prescription drug prices. There are bipartisan proposals in Congress to fix this — so this is the moment to finally enact legislation into law.
Like many seniors, I cannot afford to keep paying higher and higher prices for the medications I need. No one should have to choose between putting food on the table and filling life-saving prescriptions.
I’m demanding that my members of Congress vote yes on a bill that lowers drug prices.
Mother thanks dealership for kindness to family
I would like to extend my deepest appreciation to the Michael Hohl family of dealerships here in Carson City on behalf of my late daughter, Michele Roach. She was part of a company that cares for their employees since I witnessed this firsthand during her three-plus years of illness.
Their caring has extended to her husband, Rick Roach, and it still amazes me how much they exemplify corporate America at its best. Everyone might not feel the same way I do, but for us, they are one of a kind.
I was in corporate America for over 39 years as a banker, so I speak from experience as a vice president of business development, public relations, community involvement and working my way up the ladder through hard work and education. Degrees alone do not make a career for anyone, but working for the right company at the right time does help. I and my daughter were lucky to do it.
My son-in-law Rick is now trying to put his life together and go on as Michele would want him to do. I, too, as a mother hope to have some light shining at the end of the tunnel soon.
To this family, thank you from the bottom of my heart. May God bless you all.
