BERWICK SENIORS ENJOY MORNING TEA WITH JENNY MIKAKOS
Victorian Labor’s Shadow Minister for Seniors & Ageing Jenny Mikakos joined 150 senior citizens at a morning tea hosted by State Labor Member for Narre Warren South Judith Graley at the Old Cheese Factory in Berwick earlier this week.
Ms Graley conducted a Q&A style session with Ms Mikakos, providing local seniors the opportunity to discuss and ask questions about the issues affecting them in the community.
“It was a fantastic opportunity for local seniors to not only raise their concerns and discuss what matters to them, but also to get to know their alternative Minister for Seniors and Ageing,”
“Many raised their concerns about the Liberal Government’s changes to the pension, difficulties they have faced in returning to the workforce, the need for action on domestic abuse and the ever growing cost of living,”
“There is no doubt that our seniors are feeling quite unsure and worried about what the future may now hold for them.”
Ms Graley said that as their local state MP she will continue to work hard to ensure that seniors receive the support and services that they rightly deserve.
“I am here to listen and act for those in need and I encourage any seniors who may require some assistance to come down to my office or to give me a call.”
Judith Graley’s Seniors Information Kit was distributed at the morning tea. The kit contains useful information on Federal, State and Local Government services for seniors.
