Hello Booby, 

Just left you VM.   Respectfully, I will not be seeking endorsements.  Would you still care to have me submit a completed survey for public review?  I can have it to you now by noon tomorrow.  

Thankyou.


Regards,                                                                                                                                                                          Bill Hosko

Hello Bobby, 

I saw this AM that my recent communication to you had spelled your first name wrong.  I am sorry about that.  I completed your survey yesterday.  Was it received?  Thank you. 


Regards,                                                                                                                                                                          Bill
