Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff (D-Norwalk) is excited to announce the appointment of three area-residents to three Task Forces. One of those residents is Trumbull Senior Center and Social Services Director, Michele Jakab.
Michele has been appointed to the “Task Force to Study Ways to Protect Senior Citizens from Fraud". This task force establishes a ten-member force to not only study ways to protect seniors from fraud, but will also require the study to include available planning services for Medicaid applicants.
Michele is a Norwalk resident with over seventeen years of experience as a clinical social worker working with older adults, caregivers, and families. We know that Michele will work to reduce the risks of fraud and to try to eliminate fraud altogether in order to protect the elderly in our state.
We applaud Senator Duff for recognizing the leadership qualities that Trumbull has always recognized in Michele. The town of Trumbull congratulates Michele Jakab on this appointment and is confident in her ability to make much-needed contributions to this task force.
