the letter the group presented and Representative
Paul Ryan's response
did not address our concern and question clearly stated in our letter. For
this reason, we are presenting another letter to Representative Ryan on Tuesday,
February 11 at 3:30 PM just before our regularly scheduled Peace vigil. If
you would like your name added to this letter, please email Sue Nelson at the
link on the bottom of this page. Please join us at the February 11
to view the new letter.
