Newt Gingrich is and has been a frequent visitor to Eagle County.
Often speaking at the AEI World Forum (back in the day) and over the years a frequent guest of Dr. Malik Hasan and Mrs. Seeme Hasan.
The Hasan’s have often held political events at their Beaver Creek residence where the members of Eagle County’s GOP (and others) have always been welcome.
Gingrich will undoubtedly challenge the current occupant of the White House in the Presidential election – 2012.
It certainly won’t hurt Eagle County – to have a person in the White House – who is familiar with our valley after visiting here many times over the years…now will it?
What you may not know is that Newt and Dr. Hasan have had (a years long personal relationship) and written a joint paper (December 2010) about our nations Healthcare System and how Information Technology can help improve it – dramatically. (Click Here).
Dr. Hasan also has an interesting perspective on Healthcare not only as a Physician/Neurologist, Dr. Hasan helped start a very successful private-sector company called QualMed – a pioneer in HMO’s. Gee…our nations Healthcare…a Presidential election issue? Now you know some of the reasons why Newt Gingrich – spends time here in Eagle County.
Looking ahead to a Gingrich Administration? Some day in the future the ECT gang would like to see Dr. Hasan – as our Country’s next Health and Human Services Secretary – a Cabinet level position. To learn more about why the ECT believes Dr. Hasan’s unique qualifications match perfectly to this position in a Gingrich Administration (Click Here).
Think the ECT’s story about a potential Presidential candidate..has some how ‘jumped the gun’? All the ECT can tell you today is – Stick around.
