Ferrioli Honored with Two Achievment Awards Oregon's District 30 State Senator Ted Ferrioli (R-John Day) was honored with awards from different orga- nizations last week. Ferrioli was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Oregon Rural Elec- tric Cooperative Association (ORECA). The award was presented by Ron Holmes, Board President of Wasco Electric Cooperative. "I am honored to accept this award from ORECA," said Ferrioli. "Being the voice for rural Oregonians has been my privilege." "Senator Ferriolihas spent his entire career fighting for the livelihood of rural Orego- nians," said ORECA Execu- tive Director Ted Case. "He has been the voice of the small towns and remote areas that depend on the power from the Columbia and Snake rivers for their prosperity."

Betha Kagayama Legislator Of the Year Award "for his extraordinary advocacy and ~leadership in government on behalf of the Independent Living Movement and the thousands'of men, women and young people with physical, mental and sensory disabili- ties in the State of Oregon." This award is given in the name of Mrs. Betha Kagaya- ma, a lifelong constituent of Malheur County who has dedicated her life's work to advocate for people with dis- abilities. "AOCIL does great work serving people with disabili- ties, and working with them to better the lives of Orego- nians has been an honor," said Ferrioli. "I have been working with Senator Ferrioli since he was first elected and found his leadership around disability issues remarkable," said Kirt Toombs, who heads the Cen- ter for Independent Living in Ontario. "He has always been an extraordinary advocate for people with disabilities, and took the lead on really difficult issues. He is more than deserving of this honor." The Association of Oregon Centers for Independent Living (AOCIL) represents Oregon's seven consumer- driven, peer-based Centers for Independent Living.
