Jacen perhaps we should call all the East Hartford Eleceted officals and try and get some support. I am pretty sure HANZ asked them all but maybe it takes more of us asking. We only have 2 days left.

Jacen Black

We are missing a support letter. I read the New Article. Congrats HANZ. The Gazette came through.

We need a safe place for our dogs to be able to get out and expend some of their energy. We need to support this so that dogs like mine have somewhere I can take her and let her be a dog!!!! Please help support East Hartford by voting! Every vote counts!
