Taking away senior citizens’ recreation passes is insulting

They are about to pick the pockets from those who can least afford it.

To the Editor,

Re: City considers ending free over-80 passes, Oct. 8

I am outraged by this latest attack on our seniors, dropping the free rec program for people over 80. They are about to pick the pockets from those who can least afford it.

Coun. Fred Pattje supports this nasty attack on our older citizens. The Leisure Economic Access Program? Making our seniors prove poverty is his idea. What a scoundrel.

I would like to know the names of all those who vote for this insulting act to our elders, so come next election they can be held accountable.
