Finally, with a Presidential Election looming in the weeks ahead, we thought it would be important to provide an objective, non-partisan resource that might direct you to some information regarding both parties' positions on topics relating to persons with disabilities.
The Ohio Legal Rights Service has prepared a side-by-side comparison chart of the presidential candidates' positions on disability-related issues. The chart is based on information from the candidates' Websites, their Senatorial Websites, and supplemented by other sources.
Read the "2008 Presidential Candidate Positions on Disability-Related Issues" chart on the OLRS Website at: http://www.olrs.ohio.gov/prescompare.htm.
Please note that Flying Blind, LLC does not endorse either candidate. This information is being provided solely for educational and informational purposes.
