We would like to thank Rep. Richard Malaby for being a tireless supporter and advocate for individuals with disabilities. He supported our years-long efforts to establish housing for young adults with disabilities in Bar Harbor. He wrote legislation to support our efforts, and worked with legislators on both sides of the aisle to secure funding to move more individuals with intellectual disabilities off the long DHHS wait list for residential and community support services.
He has an incredible grasp of the complex funding mechanisms and issues faced by these individuals throughout the state, and demonstrates a passionate commitment to ensuring that the state meet its obligations to its most vulnerable citizens.
