Strong Advocate for Seniors

Seniors Have a Strong Advocate in Hartford Senator Mike McLachlan

MIKE HELPED EXPAND a program providing priority medical care for seniors in the comfort of their own homes and avoid more expensive nursing home care.

MIKE HELPED REDUCE the red tape for disabled veterans’ property tax exemptions by eliminating the burdensome annual requirement of filing proof of eligibility forms.

MIKE HOSTED a Senior Fair at the War Memorial and brought together 24 agencies offering support for seniors.
