Haywood Democrats Fall Rally

Thank you to all the Haywood County Democrats who turned out for the 2017 Fall
Rally. We had a great crowd who were pleased to welcome Graig Meyer, General Assembly Representative from District 50, whose parents live here in Canton. Several candidates for positions in Maggie Valley and Canton introduced themselves. The crowd gave a big thank you to June Ray who is stepping down as Clerk of Court as they welcomed the newly appointed Interim Clerk of Court, Hunter Plemmons. Joe Sam Queen and Rhonda Schandevel were both encouraged warmly as candidates for the General Assembly from Districts 218 and 219. With so many good candidates, the Democrats are in great shape for the future.


Important Information for those who buy healthcare via the ACA (Obamacare)

Mountain Projects, Inc. has announced that effective Sept. 18, the Health Care Navigator program is again available to consumers.

Navigators were laid off in early September due to a cut in funding for the National 2017-18 grant cycle for federally funded marketplace programs, but now staff is available to serve the seven western counties as well as the Qualla Boundary.  Despite the drastic funding cuts, Mountain Projects will continue to ensure the best customer service in Marketplace health insurance enrollments and re-enrollments, year round assistance and exemptions.

Open Enrollment for 2018 has been shortened to Nov. 1 through Dec. 15. Appointments will be limited and abbreviated to ensure as many people as possible can receive help. Now is the time to update your account and make an appointment to enroll for 2018 coverage.  Call a Navigator at Mountain Projects, Inc. for a free, in-person appointment at 800.627.1548.
