"Sometimes Letter Writing Does Work!"

Exonumia | Kepi

Hi Everyone, I wanted to share this letter I received from my Congressman, Jay Obernolte, 8th District, California. Back on August 19th, I.R. Bama wrote a blog about writing to our Congressmen and Representatives in the government about the U.S.Mint and the ongoing problems with availability on new-releases...etc... Anyway I thought what the heck and took the time to write to my Representative. I wanted I'd share his letter and thoughts with you guys here on this blog. Comments are always welcome!Everyone have a Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow! ; )

Happy Thanksgiving! Nice of him to right you back, although it just sounds like a huge commercial for the mint and himself. Still, if it comes up from other people of power, he might be on our side.
