"Also participating in the forum was District 42 candidate Isabella delaHoussaye, the former mayor of Crowley, who is facing Jack Montoucet, who was unable to attend."
"On health care, the candidates all said they supported a system in which money now going to charity hospitals would follow indigent patients if they choose to go to private hospitals or rural clinics."
“For the amount of money spent on health care in this state, there has to be a better way to deliver the care,” delaHoussaye said.
