Thoughts from Linda --- October 2017

It has finally come.  The ads will stop on the TV, radio, and in your mailbox.  In about a week, the elections will be over and we will know who will represent us in the various government bodies. Know what the candidates stand for, decide who represents your beliefs, and get out to vote! 

If we have individuals who wish to vote, but need an understanding on how to do that, The Arc of Southeastern Minnesota is a great resource for this information.  Call them at (507) 287 – 2032.    

I cannot express enough how important it is for you to exercise your right to vote.  These are the people who decide on how we are paid to support people with disabilities.  These are the people who pass legislation that mandates what we do and how we do it.  It makes a difference when you vote and then connect with your representatives to let them know what is important to you.

So, I will say it one more time, VOTE on November 8th!

Thank you,

Linda Driessen
