To : City Representatives

I understand that physical accessibility to the State Office Building has been altered due to construction. Since the physical disabled have legal rights to access to all government/public bldgs, I am hopeful that you will immediately provide access to both physically handicapped employees of the State Office Bldg and visitors to that bldg. Surely the City of Milwaukee should pride itself in always providing safety and accessibilty to our buildings. Let’s go out of our way to correct this situation and decrease the chance of an unfortunate accident.

Thanks for the update! One of the city alderpersons responded to my e-mail and indicated that since the office bldg was a State of Wis. property that I should contact my State representatives. I e-mailed both Mary Lazich
(Senate) and Jeff Stone(Assembly) from my home district, but neither responded. I guess I should have contacted the representatives who cover the downtown area. I had assumed if my own representatives could do nothing about the access situation, they would be in touch w/ some responsible soul. I guess I was wrong. Mary Marks

Of, course, this can go on the Accessibility Warriors yahoo group. I did sign up for it when you first called my attention to it, but have not checked it for some time. Having participated in street protests w/ Peace Action, the idea of abled and disabled showing up at the State Office BLdg w/ protest signs did occur to me. Would a public display like that be effective??
