As a consumer of community-based services for more than 25 years, I can speak directly to the importance and value of CDPA. I have split shift round-the-clock care, and manage a team of six dedicated Personal Assistants. Going into this election, I have completed two terms on the board already, and I would like to continue supporting this program.
Apart from understanding CDPA as a consumer, I have been working for Concepts of Independence as the Director of Policy for about seven years. This work has given me a unique insight into the practical issues associated with being a Fiscal Intermediary. In the past I worked for the Brooklyn Center for Independence of the Disabled, The New York State Independent Living Council, and I am also a fully accredited attorney since 1994. Recently I served on Gov. Cuomo’s abominable Medicaid Redesign Team II.
I humbly ask for your vote… Think Big – Vote Small!
