Letter: Big thank-you to local legislators


A huge thank you to Senator Fred Girod, and Representative Jami Cate for all their hard work in this year’s legislative session, and for getting the legislature to allocate $7 million in funds for the city’s wastewater treatment plant.

Gov. Kate Brown signed the bill, making it official.

I have visited our wastewater plant several times since being elected to the council, and there is no doubt that it needs an upgrade, and I am grateful we will now be getting the funds to update the facility. Again, thank you Rep. Cate, and Sen. Girod, Sweet Home is grateful to have you representing us in Salem.
