Interest in developmental disabilities I ran for City Council in Waconia, Minnesota. My opponents attacked me in the local paper on the basis of my Autism diagnosis. It backlashed statewide. I ended up losing by approximately 200 votes. As a result, I do a lot of work with public policy in MN in regards to mental health and disability rights. I spoke at the United Nations in honor of World Autism Day and also serve as chair of the State Committee on Children's Mental Health and on the Board of Directors of the MN Association of Children's Mental Health.
Experience in developmental disabilities I work with public policy organizations that work to improve the lives of people with disabilities. I have an Autism diagnosis and have an interest in promoting self advocacy, public policy, and probate law.
Anything else about yourself I enjoy philosophy, political science and classical logic.
