As a long time member of the Island Senior Center, now known as the Center4Life, I am surprised and disappointed in the manner in which we are currently being treated.
If the Police are to be temporarily housed in the Bank building, which was purchased for the occupation by the Seniors, I would respectfully request that you hire staff, reopen our Covid-closed Senior Center (in accordance with CDC guidelines), allow the Seniors to enjoy our exercise classes, card games, outings, etc. and most importantly the social aspects many of us have come to enjoy with each other from the Senior Center.
At present it appears that the Seniors are being pushed aside, and our bond issue is being diverted. This is not right.
