Social Security Commissioner Visits Sarasota

Todays News

Carolyn Colvin, acting commissioner for the Social Security Administrations, swings through Sarasota today for a town hall meeting. A guest of U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan, R-Sarasota, the meeting will likely be one that transcends partisanship in a district with more than 217,000 individuals receiving retirement and disability payments.

“I’m pleased that Commissioner Colvin has accepted my invitation to address the residents of Sarasota and Manatee counties,” said Buchanan. “I wanted seniors in our region to have a chance to meet the person who runs one of the most important federal programs in the nation.”

Buchanan, representing a district with the second-highest number of Social Security beneficiaries in the country, said the federal program remains one of his highest priorities. “Seniors have worked their entire lives with the promise of a safe retirementand. It is vital that we preserve the program for today’s beneficiaries and future generations.”

Colvin, appointed by President Barack Obama last year, will participate in a public forum at New College of Florida’s Sudakoff Conference Center today at 3:30pm.
