There are a few things you should know about Congresswoman Ellmers. Prior to being elected to Congress, she worked as a nurse and served as the clinical director of the Trinity Wound Care Center in Dunn. Additionally, her husband is a physician.
Based in no small part on her background and insight as a healthcare professional, Renee decided to run for Congress after the passage of ObamaCare. From her campaign website: "In 2009 she and her husband attended a Town Hall meeting to hear Congressman Bob Etheridge speak on behalf of President Obama’s health care plan. Later, as a volunteer, she became an outspoken critic of government-run health care and decided to run for Congress in 2010."
I hope to see you today!
