JCHE holds candidates forum
Residents at JCHE are always interested in having access to candidates to make informed voting decisions. This year was no exception. Our Brighton campus held a forum yesterday. We invited all candidates running for President, Senate, House of Representatives and state legislature -- or their representatives -- to attend. We were delighted that three candidates were on hand: Congressman Michael Capuano; State Senator Will Brownsberger; and Michelle Wu, campaign representative for Elizabeth Warren. It was a great opportunity for each to address the issues that are most central to JCHE residents: affordable senior housing, the future of Medicare and Medicaid, immigration and senior issues. With our expert staff on hand, responses from each candidate was translated from English to Russian and Mandarin. In addition to speaking to the entire audience, the candidates had the opportunity to chat individually with audience members.
