This ballot measure would change the name of an established city department, the Department of Aging and Adult Services, to signal to people with disabilities that this department also exists to serve them. The new name: the Department of Disability and Aging Services.
It’s not just a name change, though. The ballot measure would also change the qualifications for three of the seven members of the department’s commission. One member would have to be at least 60 years old, one would have to have a disability, and one would have to be a veteran.
