The People First Chapter of Muskingum County recently held their annual election for officers. Congratulations to Richard Eubanks, George Moore, Ron Pyle, Trisha Huston and Todd Balsley on being elected in their respected office. Ron was re-elected as the President for 2019.
The People First Chapter believes that all people with disabilities should be treated as equal and be able to speak up for what they want by serving as leaders and working together as a team with all members of the community.
These individuals assist other people with disabilities who are self-advocates to talk about their needs and rights with people in their communities. Self-advocates make sure that people with disabilities have the right to do what they want in their lives, are responsible for their own choices, and have the right to live and do things in the community like other citizens.
