Mendota community URGENTLY seeks assistance

Update from Linda Brown (03/23/99)

From Linda M. Brown: Dear Friends, We are scheduled to have a hearing on the Senate Resolution # 1658, Designating Coldwater Spring Area as Traditional Cultural Property, Thurday March 25, 1999 at 12:00 PM room 15 State Capitol Building, this will be heard before the Senate Govt. Operations committee, we would like as many people as possible to show up at this hearing in support of this resolution. Please if you can take a long lunch hour or can get the afternoon off do it. Having a large crowd supporting this would make a great impression. I think the Senate will be a little harder to convince than the house. If Your Senator sits on this commitee please give them a call before the hearing. Senators are, Jim Metzen, Stevens, Berg, Betzold, Cohen, Fischbach, Pogemiller, Price, Robertson, Runbeck, Stumpf, Terwilliger, Wiener, Wiger. Metzen, Cohen, Robertson,are for sures, Wiger originally signed the resolution , but I heard today that he withdrew his name, If you are a constitutient could you find out why, we do have a meeting with him tomorrow. we really need these phone calls made to get this threw this committee. Thanks again for all the hard work and support and prayers. I'll let everyone knows what happens. Pidamiya, Love Linda
