GOVERNOR’S CANDIDATE FORUM
The Governor Candidate Forum on Thursday, August 6th, is very important, we need 400+ seniors there at present we have less than 200 registered. Registration will go through Monday evening. Each Council On Aging and every other agency that is involved with seniors should be there. Your parish and area needs representation. The person we select for governor for the next 4 years will be very important in helping us serve the 1.1 million seniors we will be serving by 2020. Some of you have sat back and felt that you didn't need to help with legislative matters, but believe me they notice who is there and ask where are the aging supporters from my area. Those parishes that surround Baton Rouge should treat your senior participants to a free meal and get them there. Each parish should have representatives from the Council on Aging and other senior support agencies represented. Invite your legislators and other elected officials that support the aging.
The website to register is https://aarp.cvent.com/CandidateForum

REMEMBER WE NEED A GOVERNOR WHO SUPPORTS THE NEEDS OF OUR SENIORS.
