SENIORS ON FIXED INCOMES DENIED 1% COST OF LIVING INCREASE
The following is a statement by AMAC on the topic of Seniors on fixed incomes being denied a 1% Cost of Living Increase. Interviews upon request. www.amac.us and www.amacfoundation.com
“Fixed income seniors suffer while the Obama administration offers unemployment payments for up to six full months even though it is a clear cut disincentive for job seekers. The administration, it seems, is unwilling to give the jobless the motivation they need to start seeking jobs by cutting back on the government’s unemployment largesse. Yet, hapless retirees and other fixed income Americans may be denied a paltry 1% COLA increase yet again,” according to Dan Weber, president of AMAC (Association of Mature American Citizens).
“Unemployment … [Continue reading...]

Throughout my career in public service, I’ve talked about the dual need for both safe streets and pro-active crime-fighting strategies. And I've focused on the importance of protecting civil liberties, treating people with respect, and following the U.S. Constitution.
In New York City over recent years, we've experienced an approach to crime-fighting that has too often alienated communities from their police force through the overuse of stop-and-frisk.
At the same time, thanks to the hard work of the brave men and women of the NYPD, New York City is the safest big city in the country.
And I believe repairing relations between police and the community they serve is the key to making our city even safer.
This is why I'm proud to announce that today I appointed … [Continue reading...]
