Eliot Spitzer and Day One- the Short Version

New York State governor, Eliot Spitzer, gave his first State-of-the-State address - similar to the presidential State of the Union. As far as disability issues go, it was pretty light. He spoke about the needs of seniors to get out of nursing homes and into community care.

He never mentioned PWD (persons with disabilities).

The pols were so busy trying to impress and stay on his good side, there was no critical discussion, questions or debate. The Governor even heckled the audience, when he thought they were not applauding and cheering enough.


So much for One New York.
