From: Jacob Andoh
Date: Tue Jan 25, 2005 9:47 am

Honorable Councilman David C. Harrington:

Good morning and Happy New Year to you and your family. Thanks for for your speedy and informative response. Thanks especially to you you and your Honorable County Council colleagues for taking a firm stand on this issue. To the best of our limited ability, we ordinary citizens and community members will pass the word on, in spite of the media's sometimes puzzling failure to report and publicize such. We thank you for giving voice to communities' concerns and for your work in service to the county's residents, voters and taxpayers.
