Political Personalities with Skye

Glorious Grandparents in Government

Hear from Beth Finkel, State Director, AARP NY; US Senator Chuck Schumer and NYC Department of Aging Commissioner Lorraine Cortes-Vazquez on what it means to be a grandparent working in government.

The individuals highlighted in this feature explain how the wisdom and experience that comes with being a grandparent informs and inspires the work they do to make the world a better place, for their children and grandchildren and for many generations to come. These grandparents are bringing their perspectives to a wide range of policy matters, from combating climate change to expanding child care to protecting workers rights.

We’re pleased to introduce City & State’s Glorious Grandparents in Government – and their grandkids too.
