Lebsock focused on older population

Posted

Taking on his second term serving as the House District State 34 state representative, Steve Lebsock is putting his focus on senior citizens.

Lebsock, who represents Northglenn, Federal Heights and parts of Thornton and unincorporated Adams County, is hoping to add funding to the Older Coloradans Act, which provides funding for nutritious meals, nutrition screening, education and counseling, health promotion, disease prevention and physical activities for seniors.

The Democrat said he’ll be working to add $4 million to the program.

“We have to make seniors a priority so they can remain in their homes,” he said. “Programs like meals-on-wheels and other home services are programs that will keep seniors in their homes.”

In December, Lebsock was appointed vice chairman of the House Local Government Committee.

“I am honored to serve as vice chairman of the Local Government Committee,” he said. “I am excited to work with the committee on legislation to protect Colorado’s seniors and most vulnerable.”

Overall, Lebsock said he’s prepared to begin this year’s session and is looking forward to working with people on both sides of the political spectrum. He said because of his time serving on Thornton city council for eight years, he’s used to working with people without focusing on the R or the D.

“I want to bring about common sense legislation,” he said. “Bills that can help the single mom or the small business person.”
