We had the pleasure of talking briefly to Guy Surdi and Jim Parker from the Governor’s Commission on Disability (http://www.gcd.state.nm.us). Jim is know nationally as a powerhouse in advocacy for people with disability. He has been working on a similar project as the NM Disability Story and is interested in sharing his work and consolidating with the work we will be doing. Guy Surdi has made it clear that he is a fan of this project and as a person that works on the disability waivers and longterm services in the state he believes that it is time for New Mexico to document what has been done in the hopes of continuing to move forward.
We would like to thank these gentlemen for their willingness to work with us and their enthusiasm!
