Legislator Jacobs Thanks Don Dreyer For His Commitment to the Physically Challenged

Nassau County Legislator Judy Jacobs (D-Woodbury) thanked Don Dreyer, the executive director of the Nassau County Office for the Physically Challenged who is retiring at a recent session of the legislature presenting him with a county citation. 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.

“Don Dreyer is a trailblazer who stands taller than most people I’ve met in my life,” Legislator Jacobs said. “His commitment to the physically challenged has always been relentless and focused on making a difference in the lives of those that may not be able to help themselves. I admire him in so many ways and although I wish him happiness in his retirement, will miss him terribly.”
