    Fantastic story Stacey! Your experience is a fine example of govnerment working "for the people, by the people.

    I know it wasn't easy to do, or quick to do, but it was certainly worth doing and you prevailed in the end.

    Tip O'Neil once said "All politics is local", and I really believe that; civic involvement is the bedrock of change in this country and not only can people can make a difference and change the system, but it is our constitutional right to do so.
