We are only putting out limited information on the project at this time. That which you see at Holyokeflipcity.ning.com is all we are putting out for now. Currently we are simply twisting politicians arms and getting them onboard. It's funny how we are able to get Congressmen and Senators to review and give support, but we can't even get the "Dog Catcher" in Holyoke to return a phone call. Good thing we don't need the dog catcher, and have people like Senator Kennedy in our corner.
I'll keep plugging along, your support is all we need and ask for at this time.
