Community Advocate

Dear Mr. President, I am an ordinary adult,...when you entered into office you gave me and the public some good advice,that was,..."Get involved in your communities,..and help build our country into a strong loveable place to live". Well I have been a Board of Director Member at our local community health center,(Ravenswood Family Health Center), in East Palo Alto,...With the help of Anna Eshoo,...and Jackie Spier,..,..I have learned the importance of advocacy,...and helping my community. I love our congresswomen and see them quite often and we are even on first name basis. My question is I have never seen a sitting president and I am 52 years of age. When you come to town it cost $1000.00 of dollars to see you. My service is voluntarily no pay. I am comitted to serving my community,..One day I wish to see a sitting president. I will except any invitation you can offer me. THANK YOU !! Mr.President. You can reach me at Ravenswood Family Health Center ,in East Palo Alto,California,. I am on the Board of Directors.
