Why I Serve…
“Seniors, like the disabled, are among the most underserved people both in the community and in the nation. Our voices need to be heard and our needs addressed. I have also been a member of the American Council of the Blind for many, many years, and have first hand knowledge of the issues visually impaired seniors face as they age. As both a disabled person and a senior citizen, I feel very able to represent these two groups in advocacy as a Board member.”
