  1. I believe in new blood in the chambers. I feel that there is absolutely nothing being done for seniors. In fact nothing. My husband has MS and no facilities to move into. We now would have to move into another town which we don’t want to. We’ve been here for 16 yrs. Think all these young people will always be young. This is something that should be looked into. Thanks Carol Jackson.
