Typically we discuss the candidates a week prior to Election Day, identifying their position on various issues that we care about. Of course, supporting programs for children and adults with disabilities is right on the top of our list.

I truly believe that your vote is your voice to our legislators, governor and president. It is your opportunity to influence the direction of the state and country.
