Barringer gets award for disability work

Sen. Tamara Barringer, a Cary Republican, is the first lawmaker to receive the Legislator Rising Star of the Year Award for her work on behalf of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The award was made by the Arc of North Carolina for her work on legislation issues relating to guardianship laws and foster care.

"During my eleven years as a therapeutic foster parent for the Methodist Home for Children, I witnessed first hand the tremendous needs in these areas," Barringer said in a statement. "In the NC Senate, I fight for those who have no voice, who cannot speak for themselves; people with disabilities, those with mental illness, our foster children.''
