    Do you happen to know if they offer discount tickets for seniors? Or if they have a shuttle service available for seniors to use to reach the location where Congresswoman Brownley will speak next?
    Thanks

      As far as we know, it was free. Visits are already done, but Rep. Brownley will be holding constituent meetings at farmer’s markets in VC this week. Watch for announcements on Citizensjournal.us.
