Potosnak meets with seniors

WOODBRIDGE - Ed Potosnak, Democratic Candidate for New Jersey’s 7th Congressional District, visited the Chelsea Senior Living Community in Warren.  It is the first in a series of visits planned throughout the district.   Potosnak spoke with seniors at the Chelsea regarding their concerns about social security, access to healthcare, and the direction in which this country is headed.

“I believe we must keep the promise we’ve made to our retirees and the hard working men and women set to retire,” Potosnak said, in a conversation regarding Social Security.

During a discussion on healthcare, Potosnak reminded seniors that, “Congressman Lance was the first member of Congress to call for the full repeal of health reform.  This would mean re-opening the donut hole and forcing many seniors to choose between paying their bills and seeing their doctor.”

The residents expressed dismay at the struggling economy and America’s ability to compete.  “Seniors are particularly concerned that our country is losing its edge,” remarked Potosnak.   “We need to preserve the America they created in the last century and protect their legacy for future generations.”

Ed Potosnak put himself through Rutgers to become a scientist and a teacher, he was born and raised in New Jersey. Growing up, he worked in his parents’ small business, manufacturing lifesaving communications equipment for police officers and emergency responders. Ed taught chemistry for over a decade at Bridgewater-Raritan Regional High School and as an adjunct professor at Rutgers. He wrote and researched education policy as an Albert Einstein Distinguished Education Fellow. An entrepreneur and businessman at heart, Potosnak owns a small home repair business and lives in North Plainfield.
