Thanking Delegate Christensen and Other Matters

Dear Source:
I would like to extend my gratitude to the Delegate to Congress's office.
I had friends visiting for 3 weeks and on the day of the departure for their flight to Grenada, one of them discovered that her passport was missing. I suggested calling the delegates office and the lady working on Wed. was most helpful. Unfortunately, LIAT was not as accommodating and they was forced by circumstances to fly back to Florida in order to pursue the re-issuance of the missing passport. I do not know the lady's name at the delegate's office but she went out of her way to be kind, considerate and helpful. It was wonderfully refreshing.
I would like to congratulate Delegate Donna Christensen for having hired an exemplary staff member as well as for standing her ground and backing Hillary Clinton. I believe Mrs. Clinton to be the better candidate. I base that on her many years of experience and service. Should Mrs. Clinton not receive the support she deserves, I would willingly accept Obama, as long as we are not stuck with another Republican president for another 4 years.
I would like to urge our senators to repeal their ill-advised bill 6905. It is an undeserved raise they gave themselves with no thought to the public they are supposed to be serving and the financial difficulties we have all been facing.
