 HIRING PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES
 

Council Photo

HIRING PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES … Aaron Kaufman, one of the area’s strongest advocates to help people with disabilities, was among the speakers on June 21 as Councilmembers Phil Andrews (second from left) and Craig Rice (right) joined County Executive Isiah Leggett and Trish Gallalee, chair of the County’s Commission on People with Disabilities, to urge the County Council to place a Charter Amendment on the November ballot to establish “a special hiring authority within the County merit system to recruit, select and hire persons with significant physical or cognitive disabilities that substantially limit one or more major life activity.” The County’s Charter Review Commission will hold a public hearing on June 28 on issues that residents believe should be changed in the Charter. However, at this point, the commission has indicated it was unlikely to recommend a change in the County’s policy on disability hiring.
