 Senator Andres Ayala (D) Bridgeport, was honored this past week by the Connecticut AARP for his work in the General Assembly.  The award is given to legislators who demonstrate dedication to promoting issues that help seniors live happily and independently.
“One of the highlights of my first year as a State Senator has been the opportunity to work alongside the AARP and seniors in my district,” said Senator Ayala. “Together we have accomplished a great many things for Connecticut’s older population, and I look forward to continuing this work in the upcoming legislative session. Thank you to the AARP for honoring me with this award.”
AARP officials thanked Senator Ayala for championing legislation that improves the quality of services that seniors can receive at home. Seniors now have more options to stay in their own home as they get older, without having to turn to a nursing home to receive care. Laws passed in 2013 have already begun creating senior-friendly communities, improving access to state buildings, making Connecticut an even better place for seniors to live happy and healthy lives.
