Mayor Martin J. Walsh today announced the City of Boston is now accepting applications for the Mayor’s Commission for Persons with Disabilities. The commission is made up of nine members who work to help the City of Boston meet the needs of persons with disabilities who live, work and visit Boston. The Commission informs and advises the City on policies and procedures affecting the disability community.

"As Mayor of the City of Boston, I represent all our residents, and ensuring the voice of our disability community is heard is a priority for me," Mayor Walsh said. "I'm looking forward to working with the Commission on new ideas that will make the City of Boston more accessible and welcoming to all."

The City is currently seeking applications from people with disabilities that reflect the diverse needs of Boston’s neighborhoods and communities. Members will be appointed by the Mayor and serve in a volunteer capacity for a term of three years. Applicants must be residents of the City of Boston.

Letters of interest are due by March 1, 2014, and should be sent to the attention of: Kristen McCosh, Commissioner for Persons with Disabilities. Any questions can be directed to Kristen McCosh at or by phone at 617-635-3682. For more information, visit:
