Disabilities' Hearing Thursday at MPL


From the Governor's Commission on Disabilities: “It is important for state policy makers and planners to hear from people with disabilities and their families their concerns about current services, needs that are not being addressed, and suggestions for improving services and expanding opportunities.

"People with disabilities and their families are invited to express their concerns about services they receive at any of six forums to be held throughout the state next week by the Rhode Island Department of Health on behalf of 20 sponsoring organizations.

Their comments will form the basis of a report to be sent to the governor, state legislators and Rhode Island’s congressional delegation. Remarks may be made in person, e-mailed, faxed, or sent by mail.

Thursday, 3 to 5 p.m., community room of the Middletown Public Library, 700 West Main Rd.

Those unable to attend one of the forums may send comments by fax to (401) 462-0106, by e-mail to disabilities@gcd.ri.gov or by mail to the Governor’s Commission on Disabilities, John O. Pastore Center, 41 Cherry Dale Court, Cranston, RI 02920-3049 by July 29.

Yup, 3 to 5 at the MPL. Makes it easy for most concerned with disabilities to attend. And utilitizing the island's outstanding public transportation system, to boot. Barring the unforseen, I'll be there with a few tidbits to share. Who else will be there? I'm betting not many. An no press. Yeah, suggestions. They want 'em. LOL. I've got 'em. Not much that $ wouldn't cure.
Thanks to Projo for the info.
