Final Project Source Notes (31)

Posted by mattieliz on March 16, 2009

Source Notes (31): Interview- Citizen (stakeholder)

Interviewee’s name: Michael Gannon

Summary: Michael is a 54-year old who owns a shirt making business. Michael has been a major Obama supporter for years now and has been campaigning and promoting universal health care most of his life. He is a strong believer in this topic and attends a local health care meeting every month in downtown Eugene to speak with the locals about it.

Me: “Michael, you mentioned that you have been promoting this issue most of your life, how did you get so involved in this topic?”

Michael: “Growing up, both of my parents were supporters and I just followed in their footsteps and became very engaged in the topic. I also can’t believe that the U.S. is the only wealthy and industrialized country that does not provide universal health care–it’s crazy to me!”

Me: “Obama wants to create a new Small Business Health Tax Credit to help small businesses provide affordable health insurance to their employees. Since you’re a business owner, what do you think about that?”

Michael: “It almost sounds too good to be true, but if it’s going to save me and my employess money, then great. I’m a firm believer that the Obama adminstration will get it done and they will do it right.”
