This issue, I promised to provide some of the answers that are being discussed. Indeed, since I last wrote to you, the Governor has unveiled his long-awaited proposal to deal with both the current fiscal shortfalls and the upcoming property tax reassessment. Lets discuss just what the Governor has proposed.

The most horrific result of the terrorist attacks, after the loss of lives, is that safety is now a constant question for all Americans.

At the risk of sounding like a partisan Republican, let me say how proud I am of the job that President George W. Bush has done in the wake of an unprecedented two weeks in American history.

I'm equally proud of my staff, as they maintained themselves to the highest degree of professionalism amidst this strange and frightening time.
