Lawmakers rallied for disability programs

To the editor:

A heartfelt thanks to our state legislators, Sen. Ben downing and Reps. Gail Cariddi, Paul Mark, Tricia Farley-Bouvier and “Smitty” Pignatelli, for backing funding for disability programs during budget discussions.

You are supporting us in what matters most: becoming participating members of the larger community, finding and holding gainful employment, and accessing safe housing. Your help will not be forgotten.
