DUTCHESS COUNTY, N.Y. -- The East Dutchess Daily Voice accepts signed letters to the editor. Send letters to eastductchess@dailyvoice.com.@dailyvoice.com.

To the editor:

Who will fight for me? I am a 17-year-old who has special school needs. When I was 7, my teachers told my parents I would need special programs in school to support me becoming all I could be.

I was exceptionally bright and would need advanced placement classes starting in at least the fourth grade. I get some special needs classes now, but they are for those with mental and physical disabilities.

You see, I have been drinking water with too much lead and chemicals like PFOAs and PCBs.

Who will fight for me and all the children in New York?

Terry Gipson will.

Who will fight for me? I am a 27-year-old with learning disabilities and mental problems. I have been given an 8-by-10 room that costs almost $50,000 and operations costs to support and maintain it.

I get three meals a day, plus all the staffing to take care of me.

The problem is it is in a new jail that I can’t leave or where I can get the real mental health services to help me get well.

Who will help me and the estimated 30 percent of other inmates with mental illness in New York.

Terry Gipson will.

We need Terry Gipson back as our Senator in the 41st New York Senate District fighting for all of us in Dutchess and Putnam counties.
