GIANARIS HOLDS SENIORS FORUM

GIANARIS HOLDS SENIORS FORUM


Some 100 seniors turned out for Assemblymember Michael Gianaris’ annual seniors forum at the Peter J. Della Monica Senior Center recently. The Astoria lawmaker was joined by several directors of government and private agencies that provide services needed by seniors.

Many questions were directed to Access-A-Ride, which provides transportation services for seniors, Gianaris said. Also included on the panel was the owner of A-Ride-For-All, a new Long Island City-based taxi service that provides accessible vans for the disabled.

"It was very informative and a number of audience members got their questions answered right away," Gianaris said. "The best part about the event is that residents were able to talk directly with the directors of government and private offices that provide services for those in need."s
