Douglas announced on August 27 of this year, that he would not seek re-election as Governor in 2010.

As Governor, he has made health care reform a top priority in Vermont so its citizens have access to high-quality, affordable health care. Less than a year after taking office, the Governor launched The Blueprint for Health to transform Vermont's health care system and help all Vermonters lead healthier lives and reduce health care costs, and in 2006 signed a comprehensive package of health reforms to expand access to coverage, improve the quality and performance of the health care system and contain costs.

Douglas has served the people of Vermont for nearly 40 years, culminating with his election as Governor in 2002. His public service began by being elected to the Vermont House of Representatives just after graduating from Middlebury College in 1972.

The National Press Club luncheon will begin promptly at 12:30 p.m. and Douglas' remarks will begin just after 1:00 p.m., followed by a question-and-answer session. Advance reservations should be made by contacting reservations at the National Press Club, (202) 662-7501 or reservations@press.org. Cost of luncheon admission is $17 for National Press Club members, $28 for their guests and $35 for general admission.

Credentialed press may cover this event with proper ID.

The National Press Club is located at 14th and F Streets, NW, one block west of Metro Center. For more information about the Club and its programs visit www.press.org.
