Promoting Democratic Values in Hancock County, Maine.

Upcoming: June Meeting

The Importance of Social Security

With Jon Bauman

Thursday, June 15, 2023 7:00–8:15 PM
Hybrid meeting: Moore Center, Ellsworth AND Zoom

Jon Bauman, president of the Social Security Works PAC and vice chair of the DNC Seniors Council, will talk about why it is vitally important now more than ever to elect candidates who support protecting and expanding Social Security benefits at the June 15, 2023 Hancock County Democratic Committee meeting. He is best known as “Bowzer,” a member of the band Sha Na Na, as a singer, actor, and as a game show host.

The Social Security Works Political Action Committee was created in 2017 to elect leaders who will work to expand Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid, and lower prescription drug prices for all. It was formed in response to threats from various sources that would like to cut or even eliminate these misnamed “entitlement” programs. The 2024 elections focus a lot of attention on these issues. Bauman will present his suggestions about how to best prepare for the 2024 elections to protect Social Security.

There will be time for questions and answers with Mr. Bauman for both in-person and Zoom attendees.

The Moore Center is located at 125 State Street, Ellworth. If you plan to attend by Zoom, pre-registration is required.

Please be sure to pre-register by noon on Wednesday, June 14. You will receive a unique link you will need to use to join the meeting.
