“Liberty, taking the word in its concrete sense, consists in the ability to choose."
This year we will have the ability to choose who will serve as our President and who will represent us in Congress. The result of those choices could have profound effect on how we address our nation’s autism crisis. As we prepare to celebrate our nation’s 236th birthday, be thankful for your right to choose through the ballot box.
