2022 RI Gubernatorial Candidate Forum on Senior Issues
About the Forum
The Senior Agenda Coalition and 17 co-sponsoring agencies are organizing an opportunity for the 2022 gubernatorial candidates to speak to the issues of Rhode Island’s aging population.
The forum’s overarching question is: What will our next governor do to ensure the well-being of seniors, considering the forecasted population growth of older Rhode Islanders? RI Statewide Planning projections indicated that people sixty-five and older will grow to over 247,000 by 2030, an increase of 65,000 seniors over the 2020 census.
