Disabilities Law could have made a difference for Webster

The new Disabilities Law could have made a difference in the life of a former Special Olympics athlete murdered two years ago.

The law is named for Solomon Webster, who was killed by a gunman in West Bay in September 2014. Senior Policy Advisor Shari Smith knew him and said Mr. Webster was doing well for himself.
He was working and wanted his independence. They tried to get him an apartment, but he was denied.

Ms. Smith made her comments on last week’s episode of The Panel. The Disabilities Law also calls for a council which will act as a watch dog of disabled rights and create an anonymous, non-mandatory registry of special needs clients.
