First Videos Focus on the Primary Race for Mayor of Gary
AARP Indiana released today the first in a video series entitled “60 Seconds with the Candidates.” These videos are part of AARP Indiana’s continued efforts to ensure 50-plus voters know where candidates stand on the issues that are important to them and their families.
AARP Indiana will be posting the “60 Seconds with the Candidates” series online, as well as promoting the guides through a variety of ways, including on social media, volunteer networks, and through email.“We are committed to doing everything we can to ensure our members get the information they need to choose a candidate that supports their views and values,” said Emily Gorman, AARP Indiana director of community engagement. “Older voters show up to vote and these videos will help Gary residents and the public know where candidates stand on the issues.”
The videos can be viewed on AARP Indiana’s website by clicking here.
Each candidate was asked the following questions:
- Housing: What specific policy recommendations do you have to provide housing options that are affordable, physically accessible, and close in proximity to essential services and amenities?
- Services & Support for Older Adults: With the current levels of federal, state, and local funding, what services do you plan to provide older residents to help them stay in their homes and communities as they age.
- Transportation: What is your vision to ensure that people who either choose not to drive or are unable to drive, have access to affordable and convenient mobility and transportation options?
AARP has a proud 37-year history of non-partisan voter engagement and does not endorse or oppose candidates, nor does AARP make contributions to political campaigns or candidates. We encourage all Hoosiers to ask questions, so they understand where the candidates stand on important issues when making their decisions this May and upcoming this fall.
