Letter to CA legislators on Prop 56
Dear Assemblyman Ting and Senator Mitchell,
As CEO and Dental Director of the nonprofit Gary and Mary West Senior Dental Center in San Diego and Chief Strategy Officer and Executive Vice President of West Health, we are writing to urge you to support the oral healthcare needs of seniors. It is a key reason why California voters passed Prop. 56 last year: to invest new tobacco tax revenues into expanding patient access to essential healthcare services provided by community clinics, dentists and physicians.
