Local voices need hearing on local, state and national level

Dear editor,

I heard the president say we need to reduce our dependency on foreign oil. I did !! Now he has halted all offshore drilling for oil approved by the Bush Administration. Does anyone besides me remember $4 a gallon gas? Once again, call your senators, congressmen, and your president. They must hear the voices of all people and not just special interests like the environmentals. It is a government of the people, by the people and for the people. Speak up or lose your rights!
