Staff members from U.S. Sen. Al Franken’s office will be in Two Harbors at 9:30 a.m. Friday at city hall. The topic of discussion will about area seniors and the unique challenges they face in their retirement years.
Franken serves on the Senate’s Special Committee on Aging as well as the Subcommittee on Retirement and Aging of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions. Next year, both of these panels will reauthorize the Older Americans Act, which funds many of the local services used by seniors. Franken said the meetings will allow his office to hear from Minnesota seniors about what is working and what needs to be changed to allow Minnesota seniors to thrive in their retirement years.
