Mike Reynolds has been a web wrangler and writer for Ability Maine since 2009. He currently writes the majority of Ability Maine's news content. Mike's interests and the scope of his writing are wide-ranging. He profiles members of Maine's disability community, covers news items of relevance to people with disabilities, and reports on his own or others' activism for social justice in Maine or around the country. Recently, Mike's expose on UCP of Maine sparked outrage and was likely the impetus for important changes in the organization.
