Inspired by collaborative spirit of our state leaders

I was recently recognized in this Op-Ed in the Cranston Herald that was co-authored and signed by the executive directors of 23 agencies that provide supports to approximately 3,600 Rhode Islander’s with intellectual disabilities and developmental disabilities and their families. The work that is being done and will continue to be done by these organizations in Rhode Island is work I am proud to support through my advocacy in the legislature.

"We are lucky to have the support of champions in the legislature like Rep. Teresa Tanzi and Sen. Louis DiPalma who recognize that these changes are not insignificant, and our state’s leaders have recognized that for a time this will require additional investment."
