Murrysville consumer advocate and AARP volunteer Mary Bach has been named one of AARP’s quarterly “Volunteer Superstars.”

Bach leads AARP Pennsylvania’s Consumer Issues Task Force, which has hosted more than 1,100 consumer protection programs statewide in the past decade, and she recently testified before the U.S. Senate’s Special Committee on Aging.

She was recognized earlier this summer by Gov. Tom Wolf at the state Capitol for her work to educate consumers. She appears in a monthly “Scam Watch” segment at Fox 43 TV in Harrisburg and hosts her own YouTube series reviewing popular scams and how to prevent them.

“I am truly grateful to AARP for giving me the opportunity to do presentations about issues that can make a difference in someone’s life,” Bach said. “AARP’s anti-fraud messages may be even more important than the national AARP Office realizes.”

Bach was one of 12 “Superstar Volunteers” chosen nationwide.

Follow Bach on Twitter for regular updates and consumer-advocate announcements.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
