AARP Members Lobby

Members of AARP’s Riverdale Chapter pause for a photo recently while visiting the State Capitol to speak out on legislation affecting seniors, the unemployed, and needy Georgians seeking public assistance. They include (from left) Mary Clark, Barbara Sweaney, Mary Thompson, Ida Knight, Leroy Bishop, Geri Smith, Patricia Butler, Ursla Keyes, Jacqui Jones, Shirley Clark, Lois Clark and Diane Green. The legislation on reducing benefits for seniors for funding was maintained, but unemployment benefits were reduced from 26 weeks to 14 to 20. Some 22 AARP members went down to the Capitol.
