I will be speaking for Angie at tomorrow's exclusion hearing. I have gathered evidence that she was genuinely in diabetic shock when the exclusion took place.
Angie suffers from developmental disability, epilepsy, and diabetes.
The vast majority of Trimet employees have no idea what any of that means.
To Trimet employees, there are no poor, there are no disabled, everybody suffers from the same callous treatment. (speaking generally)
Trimet is woefully unprepared to deal with AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT riders.
There has been no training of employees on this subject
The ADA to Trimet means stop announcements and nothing else.
I will do my best to get this exclusion set aside.
