The following is a letter to Sen. Maria Cantwell:
Based on the Bipartisan Budget Act (H.J. Res 59), the legislation you just voted on in December 2013, you have broken the faith with all military members, especially military retirees
I would like to take this opportunity to challenge the citizens of Okanogan County. Public education is a great privilege our children have as citizens of this nation. It does not come without cost or sacrifice.
