For nearly two hours today, Valle Verde Retirement Community was the site of an interactive town hall with Congressman Salud Carbajal. Congressman Carbajal provided an overview of the current state of affairs in Washington followed by inquiries from approximately 90 residents and Valle Verde team members.

“I am pleased to join with the residents at Valle Verde to discuss the issues most important to them,” said Rep. Carbajal. “Strengthening Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid programs for our seniors is a priority for me in Congress, and I welcome input directly from the community on how we can improve upon these essential federal services.”

“There is a lot of change being discussed in Washington on almost every level.  It was really great to speak with our Congressman directly, hear his take on what is proposed, and know that he can hear our distinct views directly.  We don’t all have the same opinion, but we do want to know how the current policies will affect our healthcare, Social Security, and the direction of our country,” said Dorothy Burkhart, Valle Verde Resident.

“Congressman Salud Carbajal led a well-organized, informative discussion regarding the status of American health care and senior issues. His responses to questions from the audience demonstrated his thorough understanding of the complex issues now facing our nation,” said Dr. Mead Northrop, Valle Verde’s Resident

“Valle Verde is home to very active residents who have abundant experience in nearly every industry.  Staying connected and participating in our community is important for our residents and employees. We are very pleased to have Congressman Carbajal join our roster of regular speakers at Valle Verde.  He is right in the middle of an exciting time in Washington, D.C., and it was interesting to hear his take on issues that pertain to our daily lives,” added Melissa B. Honig, executive director of Valle Verde Retirement Community.
