I received a comment on my October 6 post asking if there had been any responses from the candidates. As of today, with many people having voted already and voting day itself just around the corner, none of the candidates have responded. This unfortunately reflects the fact that issues affecting D.C. citizens with developmental disabilities just don’t seem important enough to them. They don’t realize that we are a meaningful constituency, and they will not realize it until we become vocal. Whoever becomes our new mayor, folks, let’s promise that a year from now s/he will know that our voice and vote count!
