    • I read the whole thing and I am not sure if there was a real concern about it being a “government funded” senior center or if that was just used as an excuse. The problem is the man running for governor has a huge history of voter suppression and is doing everything to prevent minority voting. Hugs

  2. Absolutely disgusting. Let’s hope this inspires many, many more people to vote against those who pull this kind of shit.

    Let it never again be said that voting doesn’t accomplish anything. If that were true, the Republicans wouldn’t be working so hard to stop people from doing it.

    • Yes, I agree. But think of the thousands who have been denied the vote over the last 6 years. The republicans cannot win with their ideas nor their policies , so they have to cheat to stay in power. Hugs
