We have already made the “tough sacrifices” and are stretched to the breaking point. In a world where milk is over $4 a gallon and gas is not far behind, a 20-percent pay cut from our government will do more than devastate our finances. It will devastate our morale.
Where is our county where honesty, loyalty and hard work are rewarded? Where is our country where you have a good chance of doing better that your parents and raising your children to do better than you

Representative Cole, I am asking you personally to do the right thing for my family and the families facing this crisis all over the country. Go to the table, listen more than talk, make compromises, do the right thing. It’s really the only option, isn’t it? Thank you for your time. Please feel free to contact me any time.
