Delaware County Daily Times: Lentz earns endorsement

State Rep. Bryan Lentz, D-161, of Swarthmore, the Democratic candidate in the 7th Congressional District race, was recently endorsed by the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare.

The announcement of the endorsement was made during a Lentz town hall forum Tuesday night at the Herbert W. Best VFW Post 928 in Folsom.

Lentz said he would seek to maintain the current system of Social Security benefits in Congress.
