Opportunity for Seniors to Lower Monthly Expenses

Posted on September 20, 2017 by admin


Dear Friends and Neighbors,

As our senior population enters retirement, many of them are living on fixed incomes. For these individuals, the expenses of running a household are often too high for them to maintain.

When possible, I like to pass along information and opportunities that may help alleviate some of these expenses. With that said, I do not endorse any specific company, and encourage anyone interested in these offers to always perform their own due diligence before purchasing any product or service.

Please see the following press release for more information.

Best Regards,

Rep. Mike Bocchino, 150th District
