House Speaker Gilligan Sends Personal Thank You for Client's Letter

Delaware Speaker of the House Robert F. Gilligan sent this personal response to one of our clients who took part in our letter-writing campaign. It says in part, "While I cannot make any promises about state funding at this point, I will work my hardest to ensure that our decisions do not substantially impact the services on which people battling addiction depend."

We are so thrilled that funding was preserved for addiction services, but it's even more wonderful to know our elected officials hear our voice. Our staff who testified before the Joint Finance Committee were also told directly by members that they had read this article we sent them. So once again, proof that our advocacy made a difference.
