Legislator Abrahams Thanks Don Dreyer For His Commitment to Physically Challenged

Nassau County Legislator Kevan Abrahams (D-Hempstead) thanked Don Dreyer, the executive director of the Nassau County Office for the Physically Challenged who is retiring. He presented Dreyer with a county citation at a recent session of the legislature.

Dreyer has committed 32 years of his life to advocating for people with disabilities and their families. Although he has suffered from brittle bone disease since birth and remains in a wheelchair, Dreyer affected policy changes in healthcare, government and business that will safeguard the rights of physically challenged individuals for generations to come.

“I have not known many people in my life as relentless as Don Dreyer when it comes to helping the physically challenged,” Legislator Abrahams said. “Don was always looking for ways to make physically challenged people’s lives a bit easier and he was very successful. I admire him on many different levels and wish him happiness in his retirement.”
