Letter: Volk brings compassion to the Legislature

Two years ago I wrote in support of Amy Volks' election in House District 127. As I feel compelled to write in support of her re-election, I remain typically very private politically. While I have been remarkably impressed with Amys' aggressive legislation and proactive agendas, I feel her human compassion speaks volumes. I, like Amy, am the mother of a now "adult" child living with a significant developmental disability. I am all too aware of the toll this takes on a family. I find huge comfort knowing that Amy understands the challenges that people with mental and physical disabilities experience daily, living in a world that is too often fast-paced and confusing to them. Knowing there is a voice for both myself as well as my son in Augusta lends so much support to her re-election.
