Speaking out

Good morning all...

[Here is a message from Chef John Olsen forwarded to me in e-mail. It is of particular importance because the City Council in absolute slash and save mode may close the East Branch of Spokane's library which is wrong.

[Chef Gus eloquently writes:]

St Ann’s Roman Catholic Parish in East Central Spokane is an intentional
Parish.  People attend there from all over the County. We are deeply
concerned about the City Council’s choice to reduce the budget for Library
Services resulting designating the East Branch of the Library being axed.  The
children using this resource do not have Blackberries and home computers.  Nor
do they have funds for transportation to other branches.  The sensitivity of
the Board and City Council to put this forward as the resolution to a
$150,000 budget need is unconscionable.  The political constituents of that
area are least able to object, and are most in need of good library service.
Speak up, and advocate for the weak and lowly if you are a Christian. Chef Gus
