Consider power chair users

I get around Sequim in a power chair, as I am walking impaired.

I use the sidewalk as I feel it is safer than the street.

Homeowners leave all kinds of stuff on the side walk, like garbage cans, lawn and yard clippings. People walking or biking can get around these things; power chairs cannot.

People leave vehicles parked in their driveway blocking the side walk. Many times there is no way for a power chair to get around this.

I have a right to enjoy Sequim and go where I want just like anyone else.

With your pocketbook, mull your options

I have been asked what I mean when I say “Vote with your Dollars.” Please let me clarify. You have power and it is in your wallet. Every time you spend your money, you give that power over to the persons or company that you give that money to.

So, if you do not like the idea of a medicine-assisted treatment (MAT) clinic in the middle of your town, then do not empower the person(s) by putting your money in their pockets. Yes, it may take some advance planning to pick a new place for your Sunday breakfast, or maybe drive a little further to golf elsewhere. It would be time well spent to find a different venue for your Christmas party. Plan ahead and gas up in town instead of just outside of town.

And when it comes time to make hotel reservations for your visiting family members, choose an “in-town” hotel. There are other options for drinking, dancing and gambling.
