Senior Issues

There is an immediate need for better representation for our district's seniors, and Amber is committed to filling that role. Amber has a deep respect for the elders of our communities, as a fourth-generation Newburyport resident she understands the importance of helping seniors comfortably age in place. She is committed to safe, dignified, and affordable housing options and will fight for stronger legal protection from elder abuse and fraud.

 

Amber will advocate for:

 

  • Improved affordability, quality, and accessibility of senior housing.

  • Legislation that increases property tax deferrals for seniors.

  • Investments in senior programing that improve the physical and mental health of seniors, including exercise programs, psychological counseling, and financial guidance.

  • Ensuring accessible public transit options for seniors are expanded and protected.
