This is a letter I’ve sent to Mr. Arie Callaghan of the Grays Harbor PUD.
To the mayor of the city of Hoquiam. We all know that your city has been hit really hard by the financially tough times here on Grays Harbor.
Although this should be our slow time, the Harbor Association of Volunteers for Animals (HAVA) is loaded with cats and kittens.
Government by the people and for the people is a fantasy. We are locked into a trickle-down system that leaves most of us in a struggle. Governments should protect its citizens not jeopardize them. We have allowed money to control our actions, crippling our humanity.
