2017 Offering of Letters- There has been a great response to this year’s offering! So far there has been a total of 44 letters for Senator Paul, 50 for Senator McConnell and 39 for Congressman Yarmuth for a total of 133, with approximately 12 more that should be submitted by next Sunday. Anyone who intended to participate, but didn’t find time to write a letter the past two weeks can still turn your letters in on Sunday, May 28. Letters will not be sent out until the week of May 29th. With the proposed increase in defense spending and the corresponding cuts in many social programs, including those that provide for food assistance here in the U.S. and abroad, it has never been more important to speak out. Let Congress know that our safety and security also depend on social stability and a moral commitment to aid those in need and not only on military weapons and equipment.
