I was saddened to learn state Sen. Sue Landske will not seek re-election due to illness.

In 1997, Health Care 2000, an unlicensed HMO operating in Schererville, closed its doors, leaving policy holders with a million dollars in unpaid claims.

Landske, along with state Sen. Sandy Dempsey, held a forum for policy holders and a representative from the Indiana Department of Insurance. They also appealed to then Gov. O'Bannon to allocate surplus state funds back to policy holders. Unfortunately, the appeal fell on deaf ears.

The efforts of two dedicated and compassionate state senators will always be remembered and appreciated by their constituents.
