If you’re a senior citizen in San Francisco concerned about how the city is planning for and investing in resources for aging in place and healthy aging, then mark your calendars for two upcoming town hall meetings on the city’s budget.
- For Districts 5 & 6, hear from Supervisors London Breed & Jane Kim on Monday, May 13, 2013 (6:00 – 7:30 p.m.), at the Main Library, Koret Auditorium, 100 Larkin Street. That’s tomorrow!
- For Districts 2 & 3, hear from Supervisors Mark Farrell & David Chiu on Saturday, May 18, 2013 (10 – 11:30 a.m.), Location TBA.
These are good opportunities for residents to learn more about city leaders’ priorities and make their issues known. SF Healthy Aging and the Community Living Campaign have been publicizing the town hall meetings as part of an effort to ensure the continuity of the “Keep Us Connected Campaign,” for which funding ends this fall, and also other issues that impact seniors, adults with disabilities and their caregivers.
“We are excited to hear directly from our residents about their top priorities on issues that matter the most to them,” said Mayor Lee on the website for Office of the Mayor. “We must craft a balanced budget that …ensures San Franciscans can access city services they need.”
Make your voice heard! Attend the upcoming town hall meetings and advocate on behalf of the city’s senior citizens, those who wish to age in place, and their caregivers who ensure they can.
