Dear Mr. Strimbeck:

Thank you for contacting your Congressional office to express your support for a navigation resolution regarding the Upper Mon River, and, thank you for providing me with coverage of the Upper Mon Trail. I appreciate hearing from you on this matter.

As I told your Congressman, my friend and colleague, Alan Mollohan, I stand ready to assist Congressman Mollohan on this matter. Please know that I continue to monitor this matter closely.

As always, your interests and concerns are very important to me.

With warm regard, I am


Member of Congress
