Representative Martinez, our organization is profoundly grateful for your participation and even more thankful for your continued support of children and adults with disabilities. You are a true man of character for speaking up for those with out a voice , standing up for those who are physically challenged and for always asking what else can be done. Thank you, thank you , thank you.

Thank you for supporting and advocating on behalf of all Texans who have a disability. You are respected by all, no matter where they choose to receive services, State Supported Living Centers and community supports.

Thank you so much for caring about our children. They are all angels from God. My 7 year old daughter with Down sydrome is a blessing to our family. She has taught us how to find the pure joy in life! Please urge your fellow legislators to oppose cuts to critical services for our families.
