October 11, 2017—Provo, Utah—Last night at the Provo Library, Dr. Kathie Allen hosted a special town hall focused on Millennials and issues of importance to that generation. The guest speaker of the evening was Adrian Lefler, partner in My Social Practice and producer of the Utah indie film Unicorn City. He spoke about how hard it was for him when starting a business to afford to offer the health care benefits he feels all employees deserve, and advocated a single-payer system as a way to relieve this burden on small businesses.
Dr. Kathie Allen agreed with this assessment in her own remarks, noting that such relief for small businesses could do more to stimulate the economy than the corporate tax cuts currently being considered by the Trump administration. She then told the Millennials in the audience that their generation became the most numerous in the nation this summer, and that if they would own their voting power, they could change the outcome of this special election and elections nationwide. She then fielded questions from the audience.
