      Please don't take away what most seniors depend on for food and socialization.

      After attending the rally at city hall, I went back to Tilden Senior Center and spent the day with the seniors. The center is home to the seniors, and more importantly they are a family. They've built such close bonds over their years at the center that closure would be detrimental to their mental health. With the hard economic times of our country, these seniors can not afford any cuts to their center where they are given, and guaranteed, hot fresh meals daily. These meals provide them with a proper balanced meals that they themselves are unable to prepare at home. I'm not a senior, but I felt and saw the fear in each seniors eyes today when they imagined their center closed. One senior said to me, "if this center closes, I'll be dead." Please let's keep the centers open to seniors and refrain from cutting their center services and budget. If their centers are cut, their health, mobility, well being, and social life is also cut. Please save our seniors: AFTER ALL THEY ARE THE REASON WE ARE HERE.

      Don't let the millionaire tax expire. And tell Governor Cuomo, too. This is not a tax increase, it is an avoidance of a tax decrease. Too much of the "share the pain" talk is not about mild pain upwards, but plenty more pain downwards.

      Atlantic Terminal Community Center is the hub for Seniors living in the Fort Greene Community ranging from South Portland to Vanderbilt Avenues. It has been in existence for over 30 years serving and bringing great resources to our Seniors. It must be reinstated for the survival of our Seniors.
