Letter from Senator Thom Tillis regarding Mueller

For a long time now, we … well, many of us, anyway … have been tirelessly writing letters, sending emails and calling our elected representatives to share our views about the direction our government is moving. Our efforts go largely unnoticed, we are either ignored or receive a standard, canned response that leaves us wondering whether our letter was read, or our message passed on. However, there is an exception, and I wanted to share it with you today. Our friend Keith Wilson received the following letter in response from North Carolina Senator Thom Tillis, and I was so impressed and encouraged by the response that I simply had to share it with you. Thank you, Keith, for allowing me to share this letter.

    Hugs, Gronda

    • Jill, I agree with you and Gronda. My hope is to get as much notoriety of his letter and bill as possible. I forwarded it to multiple newspapers including the two big ones in Senator McConnell’s state. Thanks for doing this Jill. Keith
