Help Elderly & Disabled Exercise Right to Vote


Guest Commentary

When Maryland State Delegate Terri Hill told fellow lawmakers that she saw an older man with a walker seated outside a polling station waiting to vote, her voice choked with emotion.

Testifying before the House Ways and Means Committee last week, Hill said she later learned that the man left after more than an hour, never given the opportunity to exercise his fundamental right to cast a ballot.

I am greatly saddened by the murder of Maryland Circuit Court Judge Andrew Wilkinson and my thoughts and prayers are with his wife, son, family, friends, and co-workers in this difficult time. I hope the alleged assailant is apprehended quickly before he can do further harm.

There are clearly many layers and policy issues for consideration based on the news reports of the circumstances and motivations. But at this time of such an acute tragedy, the Wilkinson family and community need time and space to grieve. My deepest condolences.

Today is Columbus Day and Indigenous Peoples' Day so we celebrate with our Italian-American communities while also recognizing and honoring our native people and their traditions and cultures. Peace.
