Maine’s Second District Congressman, Bruce Poliquin, joined the House in supporting the Older Americans Act Reauthorization Act.

The bill will fund important services for our seniors and elderly, including health services, job training, and food assistance.  Congressman Poliquin released the following statement:

Having two elderly parents, I understand, firsthand, how important it is for our seniors to have the support they need,” said Congressman Poliquin. “Our seniors have worked for and earned their benefits their entire lives.  It is critical that these services are prioritized.”

Congressman Poliquin has been meeting with constituents and local groups across the Second Congressional District discussing his commitment to supporting seniors and protecting Medicare and Social Security.

Recently, Congressman Poliquin joined in Maine AARP’s monthly discussion with seniors in Bangor to talk about these issues.
