Support for you

dear Mr. President, I am behind you all the way. Please forget about the republicans and go to the American people and tell it like it is. Sign all the executive orders that you can and know our hearts are with you. Also I wanted to make you aware of your most ardent supporter. She is a disabled woman who lives on SSI which is less than $800 a month. She can't afford a car on that and has no computer either but she spends at least 3-4 hours almost every day calling both democratic and republican senators and representatives and telling them "like it is". She is politically articulate and 100% for you. She calls your line also very often. Even though she has very little money I believe her worth in what she does for this country is much more than what certain congress people are doing. I am her mother and I have seen her work tirelessly to bring about the progressive changes for all people and I thought you ought to know about what her mission is. Her name is Marcia Sspivey, 4505 Frazier Lane, Plant City Fl. and her phone number is 813 454-4761, in case you would like to show her your appreciation or someone on your staff. I know it would mean the world to her. I doubt there is any other unpaid worker that is more constantly working on behalf of you and the Americaan people. Thank you for the person you are. And by the way I do not see you as arrogant or detached. I am a retired clinical social worker and I see you as emotionally mature and with a warm heart!!! Warmly, Ellen Spivey
