Our seniors have so much to contribute to our community. With the threat of pensions and Social Security on the chopping block, however, seniors understand better than most how hard it can be out there. We need to ensure that our seniors are not just ignored and marginalized. It’s unacceptable that so many people are denied the ability to retire with dignity and need to return to the workforce just to secure a decent standard of living.
As your Councilmember, I will fight to protect the benefits that seniors have earned through a lifetime of hard work. I will also work to strengthen anti-age discrimination laws in employment and housing.
