Quote from article:
The Mississippi Democratic Party’s executive director blasted the Democratic National Convention Committee Tuesday for failing to provide adequate shuttle transportation for the state’s two delegates with disabilities.
Rickey Cole told the Observer he is “profoundly disappointed with this DNCC and its willingness to provide ADA transportation.”
Mississippi’s delegation first ran into problems Sunday, Cole said, when the bus that arrived at its Concord hotel wasn’t equipped to transport people with disabilities.
Its two members with disabilities, Elzena Johnson and Mary Troupe, along with others, waited for a second bus. It finally arrived, but then ran out of gas on a ramp to Interstate 85, Cole said.
On Monday, the delegation used its own transportation for its delegates with disabilities because it again didn’t get an accessible shuttle, Cole said. Then on Tuesday, the accessible shuttle was two hours late.
