Sen. Kissel Hosts TV Discussion With Two Ms. Connecticut Senior Americas

June 18, 2012

Ms. Connecticut Senior America 2012 Diane Saia (center) and Ms. Connecticut Senior America 2007 Joyce Keating (right) are State Sen. John A. Kissel’s guests this month on “Senator Kissel & Friends” which airs Mondays at 9:30 p.m. on PATV 15.

Saia will represent Connecticut in the Senior America pageant in Atlantic City in October. The Ms. Senior America pageant salutes the achievements of senior women considered to be “the backbone of America and our nation’s most valuable resource.”

Much of the show’s discussion centers on the issue of domestic violence prevention. Saia has dedicated herself to helping finance domestic shelters for battered and abused women and children. Connecticut law has recently been strengthened to better protect domestic violence victims, a measure which Sen. Kissel says may even ultimately save lives.
