Mayor of Bakersfield supports The Best Dinner I Never Ate

Some of you have not answered your survey, so I don't know where to send your reward. Kickstarter only allows me to send surveys once, so if you can't find it, message me with your address if you haven't already.

Good afternoon Lori,

I read with enthusiasm the article in the Fresno Bee that featured you and your family’s ministry to the homeless. As the Mayor of the city of Bakersfield, who launched Home First: Kern County’s Plan to End Chronic Homelessness in 2008, I applaud your efforts to reach out to the most vulnerable in your midst with your unique and unconventional approach.

I have purchased a copy of your book, The Best Dinner I Never Ate, and it is my plan to read it to as many young students in our community during my celebrity reader events in 2014.

Wishing you all the best in your endeavors to make a difference in the Oakhurst area.

With best regards,

Harvey L. Hall, Mayor

City of Bakersfield
