AARP active in voter education

Officials with AARP are traveling around the state working to educate voters on potential changes to Social Security and the Medicare system.

Ritch Steven, a former AARP state president, said that the organization was nonpartisan but wanted people to get the pros and cons of proposed plans in a detailed fashion, rather than in various sound bites in the news.

“Social Security and Medicare are important issues,” Steven said. “We know what people in Washington, D.C., are talking about behind closed doors.”

Steven said that most people are concerned with making sure these programs are there not only for themselves, but in the future for their children and grandchildren.

The group is promoting its educational program under the name “You’ve Earned a Say” and has been talking to the media and other organizations, giving presentations about what’s potentially coming down the pipe.

“We have very clear guidelines,” Steven said. “We make no contributions, no endorsements. What we do is focus on the issues.”
