Dear Katherine,

I want to thank you for coming out to the East Columbia neighborhood last Thursday to interview some of us. Being interviewed makes me nervous, because I’ve had what I thought I was conveying turned way around. This time I found your interviewing, editing, and reporting to be a faithful portrayal of the message we needed to send.

The homeless situation has overwhelmed our neighborhoods and institutions so the need for messengers, like you and KGW, that accurately find and report the facts is all the more important. I’ve received good feedback about the piece and we all appreciate what you did for the entire Portland community.

Thank you,

Gary M. Kunz, Chairman

East Columbia Neighborhood Association
