The Hon. Mayor Lew Williams III has responded favorably to the tenets of our desire in a civil contribution sort of, in fact has requested us to give his Hon. Office from 3 to 4 flyers so that these can be displayed inside the Ketchikan City Hall. Our request for posting these flyers in city post was not approved due to the city's protocol, we admired the Honorable Mayor Williams for his concern.
Going back to the response received from the Office of the Governor, I as a citizen was surprised that his office does not have a sort of governing towns or cities within his jurisdiction as the Head of the State. Herewith attached to this letter is the official letter from the Governor's Office for your editorial translation or advice. Or, is this another kind of bureaucracy within their office again for a small group of citizens who just want to contribute to the rampant spread of drugs in the City where we belong? To the Office of the Governor, they quoted that our issue, quote "is not important for them", unquote....
I am sure that in the City of Ketchikan, parents, employers, and school officials will surely endorse this movement, if published for your consideration, so that responses can be afforded to our meager contribution in either degrading drug "push and use" or totally eliminating this curse.
