Q: Can you tell me what Gov. Huckabee’s message would be for people with disabilities – the one in five Americans who has a disability?
Wickers: Well, I think he obviously is someone who thinks every human life is valuable no matter what. So his message would be, care as much for any human being regardless of their condition.
Q: Do you know if he’s thought about employment for people with disabilities? I ask because Arkansas has a very low rate of employment for people with disabilities, about 20 percent.
Wickers: I’m not sure about that, you’d have to ask him.
Q: Thank you very much. I appreciate it.
