Promote community programs for youth and healthy aging

As former chair of the Aging Commission, Martha has advised on the development of the Active Aging Services in the City’s Community Center along with special transportation, as well as other resources for the aged, blind and disabled residents. She will work to support age-friendly projects throughout our community to enforce the City’s designation as a certified member of AARP’s Network of Age-Friendly Community. In her profession, she strongly advocated for nutrition programs for the elderly, which resulted in $2 million statewide to augment the existing senior nutrition program to reduce food insecurity among our elderly.
