I am a husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend. I believe in sharing my talents and experiences by giving back to the community by giving my time to coaching, church and especially to the disability community. I truly believe that all men and women are created equally.
Back to my experiences on the Wisconsin Board for People with Developmental Disabilities
I was asked my thoughts on some recent campaign literature that that has arrived at the house.
We must have all of our elected officials and any other group that uses Cudahy in its name to be strong advocates for the city. Whether it is the Mayor, Alderpersons, Cudahy Chamber of Commerce, Cudahy School District or the Cudahy Family Library, all must have a strong commitment to the to the City and in promoting the City. Everybody needs to work together to sell the City.
People with disabilities and their families will become a strong, statewide network of effective advocates. People with disabilities and family members will be effective advocates for systems change through participation in the DAWN (Disability Advocates Wisconsin Network).
We as citizens will make choices and have control over our lives as well. We also need to be more included in the community by directing public resources to supports of our choice. We must be willing to become part of the community though. If we are not willing to become part of the community, then we have nobody to blame but ourselves if we do not like the outcomes.
