I have always worked out any difficulties that I have with people, neither Tasha nor I want to be a bother to anyone. On a good note, the Director was afraid that I was going to sue the town after she sent me an email so she copied her email to the town's attorney. He called me, he knows Tasha, first thing he did was to apologize for all of this. The town will be taking over the senior ride, along with two other paratransit ride programs in town. Right now if one cant's take you round trip you have to call one of the other. By combining the three van services the town can better share these services. We talked more about this; he agrees with me that my appointment should be confirmed with no threat of canceling. He agrees that once the appointment is made they can then inform all others that a dog will be onboard.
As we chatted I mentioned that many surrounding towns have paratransit vans, these are all financed by the commonwealth as part of the ADA transit program, he thought my idea that we should work together to create a larger network so that we have more options for medical treatments, shopping, etc. After his call I received another call from our Town Manager, he asked me to head up a new town committee on transportation. With my 40 years in travel I have lots of experience with transportation and with my multiple disabilities I can ensure that our town can assist all of our residents. I said ok.
