“Why am I interested in being on the MNCDHH board? I wanted Deaf and Hard of Hearing Minnesotans to have a better life and access to technology, of which I am an expert in that area. Of course, I also continue to focus on education, welfare, job opportunities, Deaf and Hard of Hearing senior citizens, and Emergency Management for Minnesota.” ~ Lloyd Ballinger
