Franks-Ongoy Appointed To SSAB

     I missed this announcement from last month:
Montana's senior U.S. Senator Max Baucus today selected Bernadette Franks-Ongoy, a leading disability rights advocate in of [sic] Helena, to be a member of the Social Security Advisory Board (SSAB)....
Franks-Ongoy is currently executive director of Disability Rights Montana where she advocates for equal rights protection for Montanans with disabilities. ...
A native of Hawaii, Franks-Ongoy graduated from Chaminade University in Honolulu and the University of San Diego School of Law. Her past legal experience includes serving as the Deputy Corporation Counsel for the City and County of Honolulu and the Attorney and Director of Programs for the Protection and Advocacy System in Hawaii.
