Seniors

Throughout my career I have fought tirelessly for senior citizens. The ever-rising cost of living on Long Island and in New York City and in Westchester is a burden on senior citizens. We should be doing everything in our power to alleviate that burden. A key senior policy that I have proposed is expanding access to transportation for seniors in Nassau County. I have urged the County Executive to expand the NICE Bus AbleRide contract to cover more of Nassau County.

Additionally, I plan to work with the US Department of Transportation to expand federal credits for seniors, to be able to use services such as Uber or Lyft. By expanding transportation options for seniors, we will help to give seniors greater freedom and ability to travel to doctors appointments, the grocery store, and live happy, healthy, and independent lives. As a Member of Congress, I’ll protect benefit programs like Medicare and Social Security so our seniors can get the benefit they’re rightly due after paying in their entire lives.
