THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, June 14, 2019 Page 11 GLSS issues Request for Proposals for elder service programs L YNN – Greater Lynn Senior Services (GLSS), the Area Agency on Aging serving Lynn, Lynnfield, Nahant, Saugus and Swampscott, has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the following: to fund elder legal services; emergency short-term care, and other in-home supportive services, including chores, home modifications and accessibility adaptations; socialization programs for isolated and neglected elders; mobility/transportation, especially esASKS | FROM PAGE 10 vor privatization of custodial services – specifically School Committee members – and we’ve gotten nobody willing to talk about it.

What does that say: the fact that none of the members have responded, requesting to be interviewed on the pros and cons of privatization?

Not only that the fact they are privatizing, but the way it has transpired. There are no public comments. There is no agenda.
