A Moment of Time Can Make a World of Difference

May 10, 2010

This letter was sent from the Association of Developmental Disabilities Providers. Your involvement would be incredibly helpful in these harsh economic times. Please take a minute to read through the letter and TAKE ACTION.

Dear Friend,

The Senate Ways & Means Committee is putting the finishing touches on its budget recommendations to be released on May 19th.

The budget adopted by the House dramatically under-funds key disability programs including developmental disabilities & brain injury residential and employment programs.

In order to prevent hundreds of people with disabilities from losing service we must create a firestorm of pressure on the Senate to convince each Member to restore DDS & MRC budget line items.

It is an election year and Members of the Senate are very sensitive to how they will be perceived at home.

Many supporters of disabilities programs have already asked their Senator to urge restoration. Today, I am writing you to urge you to ask 3 or more of your friends, family and co-workers to also write to their Senators to urge restoration.

The only way disabilities programs will survive this tough economic and politically difficult period is by convincing elected officials to do the right thing because it is the will of the people they represent.

Only you can make that difference.

Please call or write your Senator and please forward this email to 3 or more of your friends and family and ask them to do the same.

Thank you,

Gary Blumenthal
