U.S. Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-12th District) was named vice chair of the House Democratic Caucus Seniors Task Force by Reps. Doris Matsui (California) and Jan Schakowsky (Illinois), who are the co-chairs. As vice chair, Dingell will join the co-chairs in a mission of improving and protecting the financial security, quality of life, and health and well-being of America’s seniors.
In addition to Dingell, Reps. Lucille Roybal-Allard (California), Joyce Beatty (Ohio), Michelle Lujan Grisham (New Mexico), and Charlie Crist (Florida) will serve as vice chairs for the 115th Congress.

Schakowsky and Matsui and my colleagues as a vice chair of the Seniors Task Force” said Dingell. “Ensuring our seniors can maintain a high quality of life for the longest time possible and live with dignity, security and independence should be among the top priorities of the Congress. I look forward to working with my colleagues to ensure these goals remain at the forefront of public discourse, and will fight every day to protect the promise of Medicare, Social Security and affordable quality health care our seniors deserve.” [Read more…]
