  1. Dear Rep. Dalessandro,

    Our cat is stuck on top of a power pole in Sahuarita. TRICO won’t help. The firefighters came, but said their rules would not allow it. Our cat will die from starvation or dehydration in the next few days with us watching it happen.

    Is there no way to get TRICO to bring a bucket truck and some non-conducting poles out to help us?

    I am calling everyone, anyone to help: newspapers, PETA, Humane Society…and TRICO every few hours.

  3. I would like to thank you for supporting Postal reform. We need to stop the prefunding, no business can sustain this so why does the post office has to. That bill is a suicide bill if it continues it will kill the postal service. Also open the postal service to other business opportunities like maybe we could sell gift cards, greeting cards. we need to support the rural areas to continue to deliver on Saturdays, if that stops the postal service will loose billions more dollars. Thanks for your support mike

  4. As Democrats we need to be speaking out more against the BIG LIE! and explain more about exactly what the Republicans are up to. . If we don’t start talking plainly to the public we will be living under a authoritarian rule. Instead of DEMOCRACY.
