It has been said that the truth of a society can be measured in how it treats it’s most vulnerable members. That is why our legislature goes to great lengths to ensure our senior citizens and senior veterans are protected from fraud and abuse. Continue on knowing that we will keep working to protect all ages and thanks to every one of you for your time spent in this community.”
