Adrian Madaro Advocates for New Senior Center, Policies Aimed at Protecting Seniors

(East Boston, February 2, 2015)  - This week candidate for State Representative Adrian Madaro announced several policy initiatives to protect and better serve seniors in our community, including the creation of a new Senior Center in East Boston.

“Our seniors are the backbone of our community and I am grateful for their hard work and dedication over many years to make East Boston a vibrant place” said Madaro. “They deserve a top quality, state-of-the-art senior center in their own community offering a variety of activities to meet their needs.”

“Right now, our seniors get divided. They go to the Don Orione, to the social centers, to Winthrop and elsewhere. There is not one place where folks can go and socialize and have activities.” said East Boston resident Adeline Carino. “We need a place in East Boston for our seniors here and I am glad Adrian Madaro is speaking out on this issue”

Fellow Eastie resident Fran Piantedosi agreed. "We need to ensure a quality of life for our seniors. A senior center would greatly benefit that by providing a safe place dedicated to seniors and their needs.” said Piantedosi. “We all just want a nice place to have as our own."

Madaro also committed to helping seniors make ends meet by addressing the rising cost of housing and healthcare. As Chief of Staff to Representative Carlo Basile, Madaro described many instances where he worked with city and state agencies to find affordable housing options for seniors. He is also proposing a pilot partnership between the East Boston Foundation and private companies like CVS, Walgreens and RiteAid to offer discount cards for East Boston seniors on fixed income.

“No senior should have to worry about being priced out of the neighborhood in which they grew up and raised their families because of the high cost of rent or medications.” said Madaro. “As your State Representative, I will work to create more affordable housing options and to address the rising costs of medications and co-payments for patients with chronic ailments.”

Adrian Madaro is a graduate of Boston Latin School and Tufts University where he also earned a Masters in Public Policy and Urban Planning. Adrian is an active member of the East Boston community, serving as a board member of the East Boston Neighborhood Health Center, Vice President of the YMCA, President of the Harborside Community Council, Former Vice President of the Neighborhood of Affordable Housing (NOAH), and Co-Chair and Founder of the Mario Umana Public Service Fellowship.
