EASTTOWN, PA − April 25, 2022 – Senator Tim Kearney (D- Delaware/Chester) and state Rep. Kristine Howard (D- Chester) are pleased to share that 94 seniors were able to apply for a SEPTA Senior Key ID Card or renew an expired one during their two-hour event at the Easttown Library on Wednesday.
Both elected officials, who represent some of the same areas in Chester County, including Easttown where the event was held, partnered for this initiative to create a convenient location for constituents in the area to apply for a new SEPTA Key Card or renew an old one.
“I am grateful that my office has a strong partnership with Easttown Library, and we were able to use this venue to help so many of our seniors,” said Senator Kearney. “Rep. Howard and I both know that access to public transportation for seniors has many life-prolonging benefits. We are always happy to connect our constituents with services they need.”
“Public transportation is a vital service,” said Rep. Howard. “I’m thrilled Sen. Kearney and I are able to work in conjunction with SEPTA to increase the availability of this service to our seniors.”
“Easttown Library was thrilled to host Senator Kearney and Rep. Howard’s staff for a successful Senior Key Event,” said Amber Osborne, Easttown Library Director.” The community has greatly benefitted from the strong partnership we have with Senator Kearney’s office and we look forward to future joint efforts.”
In addition to assistance with SEPTA Senior Key Cards, state government district offices offer dozens of services to the public to help streamline application processes, including absentee ballots, birth certificates, criminal record checks, and more. Constituent Service Representatives at these offices can also help constituents find local resources, assist with community-related concerns, and help with any state-related issue.
Senator Kearney has two district office locations that constituents can visit Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
