Senator Clark’s Support:

  • Senator Clark has made numerous contributions to best position those of us who work in the disabilities field and as an advocate for those with disabilities. She was first elected in 2008 to represent Melrose and Wakefield in the Massachusetts House of Representatives, she is now in her second term as Senator.
  • She has been instrumental in strengthening the joint Department of Education and Department of Developmental Services program that enables students with disabilities to live with their families in their home communities.
  • She has also been a strong supporter of preserving sufficient transportation funding in community disability programs to ensure that people with disabilities are able to make independent life choices by participating in day and employment activities, and have access to medical appointments, family visits and recreational activities.

Senator Clark’s door is always open to people with disabilities, their families and to we who work hard to provide them with supports and services. We are very fortunate to have Senator Clark in our court as we continue to face state and federal funding challenges, and truly grateful for her past and future contributions to those with disabilities.

Congratulations, Senator Clark! Thank you for all you do!
