Senator Adams Letter to Constituents Regarding the State Senate

Dear Constituent:

One of my favorite pastimes is working on a community garden project.  I find it particularly rewarding labor, although it does come with the challenging task of continually fighting pesky weeds.  No matter what you do, they always pop up somewhere among the desired trees and flowers.

Excerpt:

My Letter To State Senator Eric Adams    Jul 9, 2009 at 2:47 PM
