Mendota community URGENTLY seeks assistance



Bob Greenberg has put together this list of people to contact in order of importance
to the issue.
Addresses and phone numbers of Government officials and agencies that are
accountable to, or responsible for, the enforcement of laws that protect our sacred
sites and the environment.  Please direct resolutions and letters of support to their
attention.  I have tried to add email addresses if I could find them, but please be
aware that email messages are somewhat ignored by most of these people.  If
you do choose to send an email, please follow up by printing that email and mail
it via regular postal service to the address provided.
Thank you for your support.
