“It’s a serious campaign for a serious problem,” said David Gamse, CEO of the Jewish Council for the Aging,

“We were proud to work with the Montgomery County Department of Transportation and teams of safety experts, communication professionals and advocates for older adults to create images and messages that address the safety of local seniors,” Gamse said.
