State Representative Greg Smith (R-Heppner) has been nominated by the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) as a 2017 Capitol Caregiver. Rep. Smith was honored for his commitment to advocating policies that help caregivers access the tools and resources needed to care for Oregon’s aging population.
“I’m very humbled to receive this honor,” said Rep. Smith. “It is critically important that senior citizens and retired Oregonians have access to the kind of care they need and deserve. There is a real need in our communities for more caregivers, especia
lly in our rural areas, and I am proud to partner with organizations like AARP to make sure that every Oregonian has access to quality care.”
