Advocates for the disabled are looking for help from candidates for office this election season.
Every election season central New York groups like Disabled in Action, ARISE, and Aurora, pepper candidates with questions about issues dear to their community. This year, they say those issues are requiring urgent care.
Sally Johnston, the Advocacy Coordinator for AccessCNY, says on the federal front, stability of Medicare and Medicaid is key. On the state front, Johnston said changes in state policy have created issues, especially when it comes to housing.
