RALLY FOR SENIOR ASSISTANCE
The rally was held between 11:30 AM to 1PM participated in the rally, but I didn’t arrive until about 12:15 PM, because of meeting my daughter Mary Lynn and grandson Holden at Whittier when they disembarked from the ferry Kennecott (they have now moved permanently to Alaska). I was graciously invited to speak to the rally, but declined. I just wanted to wave signs in support of seniors like everyone else. The photo shows a few of the rally participants, just before the rally concluded.
I sent a Legislative Alert on the proposed assistance program to fellow seniors in District 31, which arrived in most mailboxes today. I support the Senior Assistance program, so long as it doesn’t remove the Longevity Bonus from statute. Quite frankly, this issue should have been resolved before the regular legislative session adjourned May 16th. To remedy the situation of the legislature not having a senior assistance bill on the House floor for an up or down vote, we have called a special session to be held in Anchorage at the Egan Center on June 26th. Consider this an invitation to attend
