russellviii Vacation time is coming soon
Several members of my staff have worked with me for the past six months on a presentation that we will be giving on Monday in Washington, DC.
Today we gave our final practice brief to some of the people who will be attending the DC meeting to help advocate our position. It went extremely well. We spent a few hours in the afternoon putting just a few finishing touches on the charts. They are ready to go. What we have is what we have. We are beyond the point of no return.
Our presentation looks great and tells the story that we need to tell. I’m grateful to my staff who helped work on this issue almost ceaselessly for the last six months, at great personal expense to themselves. I’m also greatful for my upper management, which has backed me, unwaiveringly in this effort, and for other allies who have crawled out of the woodwork to support us.
I think we’re ready now.
