Chuck Smith Invites Seniors to Town Hall
(Santa Ana) - Senior citizens from Fountain Valley and the First Supervisorial District are invited by Chuck V. Smith, Chairman of the Board of Supervisors, to a Town Hall meeting on Thursday to discuss senior issues. The forum will be from 8:30 - 11:30 a.m. at the Fountain Valley Community Center, 10200 Slater Avenue in Fountain Valley.

"Last October I hosted a countywide summit on aging that was attended by nearly 700 people, said Smith. "At that meeting we were able to identify the five most important issues to Orange County's senior population. This is our second area meeting for First District residents. It's important for me to hear from the people, to provide information to them and to utilize their input in planning senior services for the county."

The five top senior concerns are: affordable housing, transportation, public safety, long-term health care and non-traditional medicine.

After a welcome by Fountain Valley Mayor Guy Carrozzo, a panel of speakers will be available to respond to audience questions. Agencies that will be represented include Orange County Housing and Community Development, Health Care Agency, University of California/ Irvine, Sheriff-Coroner's Department, Orange County Transportation Authority, Social Services Agency, Area Agency on Aging and Cal OPTIMA.

There is no charge to attend the forum, but seating is limited to 200 and participants are encouraged to arrive early.

Translators will be available for Spanish and Vietnamese..

A similar senior town hall was held in Santa Ana on February 10.

For further information about the meeting, call 834-3110.
