Patient Rights Advocate Shaw To Run For Health Care District Board

"All the Marin County patients who have been poorly treated came to me for help, whether they are medical marijuana users or not. That has been my job all along, supporting persons with illnesses who need a paralegal advocate. There have been many complaints about the hospital administration and their policies, from patients, their caregivers, their nurses, even their doctors. I am well versed on the subject, that is for sure," state Lynnette Shaw, who filed Friday, Aug. 9, the deadline to run for a seat on the Marin Healthcare District Director's Board.

The Libertarian Party has endorsed Shaw and is backing her for the November election. Candidate Shaw expects the contest to be very interesting, with ten people running including the three incumbents. "Health care is a hot issue here in Marin. I am honored to have been chosen by my party as a worthy candidate to run for the Board. I feel I am more than qualified to help straighten out the problems that I am very aware of within our Health Care District," said Shaw.
