State Rep. John K. Hampton (D- Simsbury) will host a legislative forum for senior citizens on Wednesday, October 23rd at Eno Memorial Hall in Simsbury.
Hampton will provide an overview of the 2013 legislative session and what senior issues were addressed, such as healthcare, housing, and insurance.
Hampton will be joined by representatives from the CT Chapter of the Alliance for Retired Americans, CT AARP and the CT Commission on Aging.
The program is FREE, open to the public and will begin at 1:30 p.m. and end at 3:00 p.m. with plenty of time for questions and answers. Light refreshments will be served.
“I look forward to the opportunity to update senior citizens on critical issues affecting their quality of life. The state legislature took meaningful action on behalf of the state’s elderly population and it is so important to keep my constituents informed on these matters,” said Rep. Hampton.
Hampton serves on the Aging Committee and introduced legislation creating a task force on Alzheimer disease and championed “aging in place” measures, enabling individuals to remain in their own homes or community settings of their choice.
“Senior citizens are the heart and soul of our community. I am proud to be a strong voice for them at the State Capitol,” Hampton added.
