Governor Cooper appoints Whitakers woman to council

Governor Roy Cooper recently signed an Executive Order reinstating the Statewide Independent Living Council. Gov. Cooper also appointed 25 new members to the Council.

"I'm pleased that these North Carolinians are willing to bring their time, talent, and experience this Council," Gov. Cooper said. "I look forward to working together to ensure that people with disabilities have the services they need."

Those appointed include Sandra Hicks, of Whitakers. She was appointed as an individual with a disability.

The Statewide Independent Living Council works to ensure that people with disabilities have access to the services they need to live full and independent lives. Council members will collaborate with the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services to develop a state plan and oversee the implementation of the resulting goals and policies. Under federal law, a majority of the Council members must be people with disabilities.
