Congressman Hank Johnson (GA-04) held a meet and greet for senior citizens May 31, at the Newton County Senior Center on Turner Lake Road.
The event was designed to help seniors navigate through the often-confusing and complicated procedures of Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, IRS and the Veterans Administration. Officials from each department were on hand to assist seniors.
More than 100 seniors attended. Newton County Sheriff Ezell Brown, Covington Mayor Ronnie Johnston and Newton County BOC Chairman Keith Ellis also attended.
“Helping constituents, especially our seniors, solve seemingly intractable problems is what my district office does every day,” said Rep. Johnson, who received 100 percent scorecard by the Alliance for Retired Americans.
“I’m proud that my staff has been able to help so many constituents receive the benefits due them from the federal government. Taking care of home first is my number one priority.”
