Hartford – State Senators Henri Martin (R-31) and Michael McLachlan (R-24) recently met with clients from Ability Beyond at the state Capitol

“It’s been a pleasure knowing the clients of Ability Beyond and seeing them in the community. Ability Beyond is a fantastic program that has helped so many of our state’s intellectually and developmentally disabled residents live more independent, fulfilling lives,” Sen. McLachlan said. “They have impressive partnerships with local businesses that help their clients become full, active members of the community. Meeting these wonderful clients gives you a greater appreciation of the immense value they bring to their workplaces and our society.”

“Having a disability should not be a barrier to a meaningful life that includes the ability to work and earn money to support oneself,” Sen. Martin said. “In fact, knowing, working, and developing relationships with disabled individuals enriches our lives. The optimism, gratitude, and genuine affection Ability Beyond’s clients have for everyone they meet show us a better, kinder world.”

Senator Martin represents the communities of Bristol, Harwinton, Plainville, Plymouth, and Thomaston.

Senator McLachlan represents the communities of Bethel, Danbury, New Fairfield and Sherman.
