Retirees and elderly people organized in the City Council chambers Tuesday in an attempt to save senior programs from the city’s budget cuts. This could eliminate their classes, lunches and outings.
“Most seniors who can’t get around, won’t get around. They will just be sitting in their apartment waiting to die,” said Elaine Green. The testimony was among some of the most heartfelt ever heard.
The senior recreation division, which sponsors “Golden Age”, lost their entire $349,000 budget in the preliminary plan.
