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.

All around us, All Abilities Playgrounds are popping up. It is time for one to come to the South Shore. Here is the story of a passionate group of parents who are working to make that happen.
Now that the dust has settled on a State budget that leaves a lot to be desired, it is time to turn our attention to what can we do next. Besides remaining in contact with your State legislator to continue to remind them of your concerns surrounding the proposals to long-term care, we can gear up for the next election. If nothing else, the disability community had a strong voice in this past State budget process. I was told by a number of people in the Capitol that the disability community had such a strong voice, they are a group that needs to be recognized come election time.
We are heading into the home stretch with the State Budget. Joint Finance is expected to release their proposed budget this week to allow debates to take place in both the State Senate and State House. One thing is clear to me, two of the biggest issues in the Budget are not friendly to individuals with disabilities.
