Americans With Disabilities

While I have always been in favor of laws that enable people with disabilities to live the best life possible, I have become acutely aware of just how important these laws are to ensuring that people like my grandmother can do important things like doctor visits as well as having a life outside of the house.

Unlike the incumbent, I will fight to ensure access to virtually all places both public and private. There should never be a situation where a commercial property owner or manager has the ability under the law to discriminate by not enabling access for people that cannot just simply walk up to the front door. Great strides have been made so that people with disabilities can enjoy a night out at a restaurant or movie theater or just to get around town for work. I want to keep it that way and not go back to a time when we were far less empathetic to the needs of people with disabilities.
