DentPAC would like to thank all of those who contributed to and attended the grassroots fundraiser for Republican gubernatorial candidate Rob McKenna. More than 50 dentists, dental students, and spouses attended the event on May 3 at the WSDA office in Seattle. Grassroots dentists traveled from as far as Ferndale, Spokane, and Pasco to attend the reception. More than 70 individual dentists contributed to the McKenna campaign and, combined with a contribution from DentPAC, raised in excess of $23,000 for the event.
Rob McKenna has been a friend of dentistry throughout his career in public service. For the last seven years, Mr. McKenna has served as the Attorney General for Washington state. He thanked grassroots dentists for their personal support through his time as a King County Councilman, Attorney General, and as a candidate for Governor. During his remarks, McKenna discussed health policy, higher education, and ways to reduce health care costs and make a more efficient delivery system.
DentPAC chair Dr. Michael Spektor served as the Master of Ceremonies and Dr. Patrick Taylor introduced Mr. McKenna at the event. Dr. Don Davidson, Councilmember and former Mayor of the City of Bellevue, also attended the event.
