From the Wamp campaign:
Zach Wamp, Republican candidate for Governor, will be joined by Joyce Avery, Chairman of the Shelby County Board of Commissioners, at a media availability to be held Wednesday, May 19 at 2 p.m. CT at the Regional Medical Center at Memphis, or The MED. The event will take place in the courtyard near the facility's main entrance on Jefferson Avenue.In a story we ran last month, Wamp indicated more than any other candidate a willingness to possibly support such a pledge.
"I believe the principle of that is right. The principle is wherever the Medicaid TennCare dollars are billed should go to that particular facility and that particular community. This is a cost shift for the whole state -- this is where you get all the money so let's spread it around."Wamp also is scheduled to appear in Millington on Wednesday, from noon to 1 at Old Timers for a dutch-treat lunch.
