View Full Version : Gerritt to do column on 35% surcharge

04-21-2006, 07:14 AM
YaHoo! When I got to work this morning, I had a voice mail on my phone from Jeff Gerritt. I had sent him a copy of my two page letter to the House Appropriations Committee and copies of all the backup information on the proposed 35% prisoner store surcharge in the 2006/2007 Corrections Budget. He thanked me profusely and said that next week, in the Free Press, they will be doing a column on it - maybe as early as Monday. So watch for it ladies and talk it up.

That is exciting. We must have all emailed him with the 2 page budget. What ever it takes to get the word out.
