McNerney-sponsored event offers aid, advice on issues affecting seniors team offers advice

Pleasanton residents Jean and Allan Salas (at right) ask questions about Medicare from (far left) Regional Administrator David W. Sayen, Lolita Jacobs and Mark Manfredi at yesterday's Senior Assistance Workshop at the Dublin Senior Center sponsored by U.S. Rep. Jerry McNerney (D-Pleasanton).

The congressman kicked off the event Friday afternoon, then Community Safety Officer Val Ridad of the Dublin Police Department gave a presentation on common investment frauds against seniors.

Tables were set up to offer advice on AARP; HICAP (California Health Advocates); the Social Security Administration; Medicare and Medicaid Services; the Alameda County Adult and Aging Services; and the Alameda County 2-1-1 helpline, which can be dialed 24 hours a day for help reaching community services.

We can always count on our fine Congressman Jerry McNerney to work hard at home and in Washington D.C. on issues important to us in District 11. Jerry lives with his family in Pleasanton and clearly understands local issues. Thank you Jerry McNerney!!!

Ron...you must be an Obama/McNerney kool-aid salesman who drinks a fair amount yourself. What an absolute fool you are to believe McNerney is doing anything but taking away our freedoms, taxing us more and more, reducing our national defense, devastating our economy, and trying to take away our free speech. He is a socialist like Obama, Reid, Pelosi and all the rest of the Obama Admin.

You may be one also. If not, wise up very fast before we all are one by default. McNerney is an enemy of American independence and freedom.

Jeff,

You're a right-wing, Glenn Beck zombie. I doubt you have one unique thought in your head (thats differs from the lies on Fox News).

Anyway, McNerney is a doing a great job and he has my vote.

McWimp is a tragic excuse as a representative. He only dittos whatever Pelosi tells him too. The only thing worse is the pathetic abuse of the press by PW...praising this nothing.
He didn't even have the guts to speak up for the high COL greater Bay Areans, who are thrown in with Memphis and Tulsa arbitrary income limits for college loans....now that he let Obama take away bank loans for college. what a team of spineless dummies.
