LETTERS: Seniors, get out and vote

Don’t forget about yourself, along with all those others out there, that you know to be in the same boat as yourselves.

Don’t forget about yourself, along with all those others out there, that you know to be in the same boat as yourselves.

We know the senior population is ageing. We know there are many out there that do not have the means for their own medical needs, such as proper eye care, or new eye glasses when required.

Then there is the dental care and or maybe dentures required or need replacements that they know they will never be able to afford. Or, maybe, prescriptions they may be required to take but can’t afford. This is just a small example of the seniors problems that is out there.

Most don’t like to discuss such personal matters, but the fact is, these seniors need the help.

So remember, what you know to be your needs along with so many others. Then make your vote. Thank you.
