  2. To attend meetings of the City Council, Housing Authority, Senior Center, Neighborhood groups etc.
  3. To be open to the public.
  4. To make recommendations to the City Council.
  5. To raise awareness of those issues.
  6. To serve as a liaison between seniors and the City Council.
  7. To write letters to the editor, articles, press releases, P.R. etc.
