Conklin cares about seniors

Bruce Conklin, as supervisor for four years, proved he cares about seniors. I served on the Area 4 Agency on Aging with Bruce and I was impressed with his creative wisdom in solving problems. An example: When the State was, as usual, late in signing the state budget, Meals on Wheels, Telecare and other senior services would not be able to continue their services if they didn’t get paid. Bruce initiated the board of supervisors loaning money to the non-profits until the state budget was signed. It didn’t cost the county any money and it assured services to the seniors. I call that creative, cost effective and caring. His philosophy favors services, not administrations. We seniors were fortunate to have had Bruce as supervisor before. His actions then proved that he cared about we seniors. Let’s put him back in office.
