Speaks with Residents about Senior Fair and Issues Affecting the Senior Community

Lakewood Congresswoman Linda Sánchez met with 39th District residents in a series of senior center visits in the cities of Lakewood, Paramount, La Mirada, Artesia, Cerritos and Whittier in the past few weeks. Sánchez provided constituents with information about her upcoming annual Senior Fair while also speaking individually with seniors about their concerns and ideas from Social Security reform to retirement benefits.

“Personally meeting with the senior citizens of my district is vital in allowing me to effectively represent them in Congress,” said Sánchez. “I was happy to hear their comments and concerns while also getting the word out about my upcoming Senior Fair in October.”

Congresswoman Sánchez’s Senior Fair 2005 will take place Monday, October 10th at Los Cerritos Center Mall from 9:00am to 12:00pm. The Fair will provide a variety of services for people over fifty. Dozens of exhibitors from throughout the region will offer information and services of interest for seniors and supply free health screenings and information. Congresswoman Sánchez will also give a personal update regarding current legislation in Congress that affects seniors.

“My Senior Health and Information Fair will ensure that the seniors I represent have access to different information and services that can keep them safe and healthy,” said Congresswoman Linda Sánchez. “I look forward to having a successful and very informative Fair as we have had every year.”

One of Sanchez’ top legislative priorities is to create and support initiatives that do not shortchange America’s seniors. By visiting various senior centers in her district and hosting a Senior Fair to hear their views on different issues affecting them, Sánchez remains attentive to the needs and concerns of senior citizens in her district.
