IS WELCOMING A NEW VOLUNTEER STATE-PRESIDENT--CHARLOTTE WHITTAKER, FROM HARTFORD--WHO TALKS ABOUT SOME OF THE ORGANIZATION'S CURRENT PRIORITIES...

(WHITTAKER):
"
WE HAVE OVER 470-THOUSAND MEMBERS--ACROSS KENTUCKY.  AND, WE COUNT OURSELVES LUCKY TO BE ABLE TO SUPPORT OUR VOLUNTEERS--AS THEY WORK TO BUILD A COMMONWEALTH WHERE CITIZENS AGE WITH DIGNITY AND PURPOSE ALIKE, WHERE COMMUNITIES ARE LIVABLE FOR ALL AGES, AND WHERE CITIZENS HAVE FINANCIAL-SECURITY.  RIGHT NOW, KENTUCKY IS HOME TO MORE THAN 300-THOUSAND VETERANS--WITH NEARLY THREE-QUARTERS OF THEM OVER THE AGE OF 50.  AND, WE'RE COMMITTED TO SUPPORTING THE NEEDS OF VETERANS, OF ALL GENERATIONS--BY HELPING THEM THROUGH THE TRANSITIONS THAT THEY MAY FACE IN CIVILIAN-LIFE.  ALSO, KENTUCKY ALREADY RANKS LAST AMONG THE STATES, IN THE PERCENTAGE OF MEDICAID LONG-TERM-CARE DOLLARS THAT ARE ALLOCATED TO HOME- AND COMMUNITY-BASED SERVICES--WHICH MOST PEOPLE PREFER TO NURSING-HOME CARE.  KENTUCKIANS CAN AND MUST DO BETTER:  THAT'S WHY WE URGE LAWMAKERS NOT TO CUT DEEPER INTO SERVICES THAT HELP PEOPLE LIVE AT HOME LONGER, AS THEY AGE."
