Governor Patrick's response to e-mail about Memorial Drive and Obama funds

On October 13, 2009, I received the following e-mail from Governor Patrick's office. It responded to correspondence about my e-mail of October 10, 2009, posted on the blog as part of the report on Day 387.

Dear Ms. Wellons,

On behalf of Governor Deval L. Patrick, thank you for your recent correspondence regarding the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. We have forwarded your correspondence to the Executive Office for Administration and Finance for further review. If necessary, please be assured that someone in that office will follow up with you as soon as possible. We are committed to addressing your concerns promptly.

To ensure transparency, the Governor has created the Massachusetts Recovery and Reinvestment Plan website where you can find details regarding recovery spending as they become available.

Again, thank you for writing Governor Patrick. Please know that the Governor is grateful to have your voice as part of this discussion, and he hopes you will stay involved in your government moving forward. Now, more than ever, your participation matters.

Bob La Tremouille and I will continue to check on the status of funding for the DCR's "Memorial Drive Historic Parkways" project and post it here.
