The meeting covered Connecticut's role in implementing the Affordable Care Act, state gas taxes, government spending priorities and seniors' thoughts about giving state drivers’ licenses to illegal aliens, according to a release from Bolinsky's office.
"It was great to be so considerately welcomed by this important and often under-represented part of our community," said Bolinsky. "Our seniors have needs that are, in many ways, under-served today. And especially since many of us will someday share many of these same concerns, I think it's appropriate to tune in to their message and consider how we can align services with our state's changing demographics."
Senior Center Director of Senior Services Marilyn R. Place invited Bolinsky to speak and answer questions from residents. Dozens of seniors and guests attended the Q&A, Bolinsky's office said.
"As their primary State Representative, it was a great opportunity to hear their thoughts about the state of our State," said Bolinsky. "Many residents are worried about our state economy especially those on fixed incomes."
