Decatur Ga. gov. officials hinder food stamp organizing.

I have meet 2 times with the communications director of the city of decatur. Her name is Casie and she wears a pretty red and black jump suit.


I have been polite: akso I have submitted evidence for what is befalling 47 million qualified applicants who have proved residence, income and other data for federal and state authorities. There is a tiny amount of fraud but it is being investigated and prosecuted by authorities.

Casie will not meet with me nor return svattered, polite telephone calls.

1. The food stamp office lays in the city of Decatur boundaries legally.

2. Some area churches get donated groceries 1 day a week with a liscense and sign-up.

3. We want to alert citizens of what is going on before it snowballs in an ugly picture.

3. This is a lifeline so people can work, have family of some undetermined size and play.
