As co-chair for the Joint Committee on Public Health, and a member of the Joint Committee on Children, Families and Persons with Disabilities, I have learned so much about the unique challenges families face in caring for loved ones with developmental disabilities. The love, dedication, and effort that these families show is inspiring. I am proud when our Commonwealth’s support services are there for these families, and I share in their frustration when they encounter obstacles and call my office for help. Our society can be measured by the compassion and care we show to those who are most vulnerable, and I am committed to working with The Arc and other groups that are champions for this community in need. – Senator John F. Keenan
