CHICAGO – Assistant Majority Leader Antonio “Tony” Munoz (D-Chicago) and a group of about 60 area seniors attended Thursday’s Chicago White Sox game to enjoy the day and discuss their community needs.
“These are people that are so invested in their communities and their input is very important to me,” Munoz said. “I am happy to treat them to an afternoon like this and I am very appreciative of their feedback.”
The group first had lunch at Our Lady of Good Counsel Roman Catholic Church before traveling by bus to Guaranteed Rate field to watch the White Sox take on the Cleveland Indians.
Seniors were provided with visors and health record books to keep track of their medical history as well. The books included helpful phone numbers and information for dealing with health emergencies.
“I enjoyed seeing our seniors out at the ballpark enjoying the Sox game and the wonderful weather we were blessed with,” Munoz said. “It’s important that we keep up with the needs of the seniors in our community and make sure they aren’t forgotten.”
While the Sox were defeated 5-2, Munoz said the seniors enjoyed the weather and a two-run home run from Jose Abreu in the first inning.
“For so long, people like this have worked so hard to make our community better and make me a more effective legislator,” Munoz said. “I am happy to provide them with this opportunity.”
