Congressman Filner Promises to Support Senior Programs and Activites

Today at the Gary and Mary West Senior Wellness Center, Congressman Bob Filner stopped by to talk to the seniors. I’ve known Bob for a longtime, since before my days began with Senior Community Centers. He worked his way through the room. He talked to seniors about those issues affecting them. He has long represented the 51st district for many years now. Over the past week, we appreciate that our Congressional representatives, Susan Davis and Bob Filner take time from their busy schedules to stop by and express their support for seniors and the work we do at Senior Community Centers. Our nutrition program is the foundation for our model of care. As hunger and food insecurity grows, so does the importance of nutrition programs like ours.

The House hasn’t yet addressed the Reauthorization of Older Americans Act. In the other chamber, Sen. Sanders (V) is expected to introduce his bill on the OAA Reauthorization. This bill affects nutrition programs, like ours, across the nation. Check back soon or sign up to receive blog updates.  I will post my thoughts on the bill as soon as it is released and I’m able to review it.
