Original post made on Aug 27, 2007

In an effort to help dozens of Peninsula residents -- including 30 from Mountain View and others from Palo Alto who say their sensitivity to chloramine has caused skin rashes and respiratory problems -- Congresswoman Anna Eshoo is pulling strings to allow them to speak with the state Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Dear Editor,

Thank you for putting this very important issue in front of the public. I believe that all the chlicoramine victims including CCAC members will feel same way like me. Your article reports to the public that Congresswomen Eshoo is the first federal governor response to public as federal issue.
I appreciate Congresswomen Eshoo take action for serious issue.

It is broken-hearted to think the chloemaine victim¡¦s life including my son to you again. In the past years CCAC keep to track the chloemaine victim¡¦s inland of the country. Now we have seen more people suffered the miserable life like my son again

I write the first letter to town council members on Sep 15, 2005 to ask water district official for whether safely regards in the water adds the chloramine, the fluoride and other chemical products. From then almost two year passed, my son is not recovered from allergy problem. He eats limited food, use bottle water and relies on cortisone to work on his life. Sometimes he suffered from allergy few weeks for unknown reason. He now is 24 years old, is indefinite back to the normal student life. His health insured coverage from mine company will expired on 01/04/08.

What is your feeling to see so many families¡¦ life are destroyed for the careless decision made by the officers? I believe that you feel the same way like me. That is why you always continually report this issue to public.

So I have to be the first one to write thank you letter to you and Congresswomen Eshoo in public.

Best Regards,
