RESOLUTION OF THE BOARD OF ALDERMEN OF THE CITY OF NEW HAVEN URGING THE CONVENING OF TOWN HALL MEETING TO DISCUSS THE IMPACT OF SOCIAL SECURITY OF NEW HAVEN.

WHEREAS: in Connecticut 21% of adults receive Social Security benefits including 23% of women and 19% of men, meaning that about 313,000 women, 227,000 men and 31,000 children rely on Social Security; and

WHEREAS: in Connecticut 176,000 beneficiaries of Social Security, mostly women and children are receiving survivor of disability benefits; and

WHEREAS: 75 percent of older African American and Latino households and 62 percent of all households rely on Social Security for half or more of their income, and less than a third of older African American and Latino households have any income from savings; and

WHEREAS: in 2002 , $6.2 billion flowed into the Connecticut economy through Social Security benefits which could be cut by nearly 50 percent under proposed changes.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED: that the New Haven Board of Aldermen urges the convening of a town hall meeting to discuss the impact of Social Security of New Haven and urges Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro to collaborate with us in this effort as well as invite the Mayor, the New Haven delegations to the state legislature and congress, and the community as whole.
