NEW BRITAIN, Conn. – Members from The Alliance for Retired Americans endorsed U.S. Rep. Elizabeth Esty for re-election to U.S. Congress from Connecticut’s 5th District during a celebration of Social Security’s 79th anniversary in New Britain.
“Elizabeth Esty is really a champion for seniors,” Richard Fiesta, executive director of the Alliance for Retired Americans, said in a press release. “She can be trusted to lead with our interests.
