Would have been better than a reply I received to a recent correspondence from the OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR.
I e-mailed Governor Branstad, before I left last week, urging him to use his veto power to once again strike down legislation passed by the Legislature.
Namely, $1 million of taxpayer dollars for food banks and pantries, as well as helping bail Des Moines out for collecting an illegal tax.
The response I received, on June 5, from Administrative Assistant Ann Hughes was just sadly lacking.
AA Hughes (inside joke) advised me that the Governor "will keep your views in mind" regarding the food bank bill "should this legislation pass through both legislative chambers and arrive to our office for consideration".
