Davis has shown support for those with disabilities

To the Editor:

Seldom do I cross party lines in politics. However, there is one Republican candidate I will vote for: Sen. Jim Davis, R-Franklin. My reason is that during his term in office he has been committed to serving those in this area and statewide who have disabilities, whether those disabilities are mental or physical or a combination. We are seeing a higher number than ever with disabilities and these citizens should not be ignored. A strong advocate is needed within the state legislature to assure their rights are protected and services not diminished. Mr. Davis has proven himself as a strong and very concerned advocate for this segment of our population.
