Mike has always worked hard since coming to town, starting a delivery service on his three wheeled bicycle. He learned how hard it as to navigate the streets with improper curbing. That led him to run for city counci.
Fast forward to the present. He is now in an electric wheel chair and still making the rounds and advocating for people with disabilities as he has learned from personal experience.
Mike has had a tough time making ends meet over the years. But he always sees a shining star. He has recently published an ebook for the service industry on how to serve persons with disabilities. A couple of years ago Mike spoke to my staff about how it feels to be treated and how uninformed and uncomfortable people are on how to serve people with disabilities. It was a great presentation by him and it brought my staff to tears. Anyway, I really think Mike deserves a look for a story and anything we can to do to help bring the tools to the people.
