JBT Silver Beat PhotoPLAINFIELD- As a part of her ongoing efforts to bring state government to community members, State Senator Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant (D-Shorewood) held a legislative town hall and a workshop geared toward seniors last Thursday.

“These events allowed me to listen to residents’ concerns regarding state issues and provide them with information on how they can keep themselves safe,” Bertino-Tarrant said.

Bertino-Tarrant’s Silver Beat Presentation helped seniors and others in attendance learn how to protect themselves from financial scams and health care fraud.

Silver Beat is an educational training program created by Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan to ensure that seniors have the knowledge and tools they need to better protect themselves from con artists and deceptive business practices.

Bertino-Tarrant also hosted a legislative town hall, where she took questions from attendees on the budget and other state issues.

“I appreciate the conversation at the town hall and want to thank everyone who took time out of their busy schedule to attend,” Bertino-Tarrant said.

Bertino-Tarrant regularly hosts town halls that are open to the community.

The senator’s next town hall is scheduled for December. For more details, you can click here.
