Veterans urged to support tri-county vet office
October 31, 2007
Open letter to Sublette County Vets from Patty Burgin Perengliev, Sweetwater County VFO:
“These next two weeks, we need you to call the veterans in your county. Ask them to call their commissioners and encourage them to support the upcoming MOU (Memorandum Of Understanding) between Sweetwater, Sublette and Lincoln. This would put less stress on your county and insure that the employees get paid on time and that the offices stay open. Explain to them that Sweetwater is paying the most which is 60%, Sublette 30% and Lincoln 10%. Also explain to them the trouble we have had getting paid from Sublette County. This MOU will take away those problems and employees will get paid on the first of each month and the offices will have a better chance of remaining open.
The MOU lets the three counties put all their resources together and takes away county lines. In the future it will take away any county refusing service to the other county veterans. The vote will be November 6th, so time is vital, call every veteran possible. Attached are the phone numbers of your County Commissioners.
Bill Cramer: 307-367-2555
Joel Bousman: 307-537-5213
John Linn: 307-276-5408
County Commissioners: 307-367-4372”
