Bauer to hold town hall for seniors

MT. PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) - Lt. Governor Andre Bauer will hold three town hall-style listening sessions in mid-October to hear from senior citizens, as well as those with an interest in senior issues, to determine what South Carolina's priorities should be in delivering services to older South Carolinians.  Both candidates running to succeed him in office have been invited to attend as well.

The first will be held Monday, October 11 at 10:30 a.m. at the Mt. Pleasant Senior Center in the Thomasena Stokes-Marshall Building at 840 Von Kolnitz Road.  Additional meetings will be held later in the week in Florence and Greenville.

Seniors will be asked their opinion on how to prioritize dwindling state resources among such essential services as personal and financial safety, home and community based services that delay or prevent more costly institutional care, and enhancing access to health care.
