    September 6, 2016

    Dear Senator McGuire:

    On behalf of the ERFA Board and all members of the campus community who were present at your presentation today, I want to give you a hearty thanks for your willingness to come and speak to us. Your thoughtful and well-informed remarks were very interesting, and helpful in our making sense of a chaotic political season. We have new respect for your patience in dealing with the roadblocks in Sacramento to getting important things done that obviously need to be done. We look forward to further conversations. Thanks again for coming!

    Rick Luttmann, PHD, Professor Emeritus of Mathematics, on behalf of the SSU ERFA Board.
