Letter writer says voters should OK Proposition S to help seniors

To the editor:

I feel compelled to state for the record that I believe Proposition S should pass.

Prop S, which is on Tuesday’s ballot, will create senior citizen service funds to help seniors stay in their homes longer. While taxpayers are many different ages, one thing is for certain. We will all, hopefully, become senior citizens some day. Also, many of us will need help at some point along the way. Life is a very long process and unknown factors can easily turn a well-planned future upside down.

Please ignore the calls of others to make seniors pay for their own services. This is a modest increase and our seniors should have it. I believe that “respect your elders” is not just a phrase, but a way of living. Vote “yes” on Prop S.
