The Center for Developmental Disabilities has awarded State Sen. Dave Syverson (R-Rockford) for his work to protect some of Illinois’ most vulnerable citizens.
“Senator Syverson has always been a champion for people with disabilities,” said Marie Rucker, Executive Director of the Center for Developmental Disabilities Advocacy and Community Supports. “He understands and supports our issues, and he also takes the time to tour the facilities and meet with our families, which shows true compassion for the people he represents.”
The organization represents facilities like the Walter Lawson Children’s Home in Rockford.
“I am honored to have been recognized by an organization that works to protect individuals who, through no fault of their own, face some truly significant challenges,” said Sen. Syverson.
