Thank You, Governor.

#FreeNeli. Remember?

After years (literally) of media coverage, a wonderful thing happened yesterday.

Governor McAuliffe signed a conditional pardon for Reginald (Neli) Latson. Neli will be transferred to a facility in Florida.

For those that petitioned, posted, and retweeted online – thank you. It shows that people are paying attention.

Governor, thank you for being able to see that this was a man that has special needs that cannot be addressed in general prison.  You listened to your constituents in the Commonwealth.

Even better – you did it from your hospital bed. Well done. Hope you recover quickly.

About OneLoCoMommy

I live in Northern Virginia and and I look like the stereotypical suburban mom, for better or for worse. My son plays baseball and takes karate (albeit adaptive). My daughter is a gymnastics diva but rolls with the boys in T-ball. I've been a Room Mom and Playdate Coordinator. I work full-time, try to work out, and love my Book Club. However, I also blog on my experiences on our ASD, SPD and ADHD journey while trying to be a better parent advocate. All in a life's work.
