All testimony must be in 3 minute segments by testifiers.  This is the first and last opportunity for the public to speak.

Be prepared and ready to speak when your name is called.  There will be a great number of speakers on both sides, so stand in line when your name is first called. (President’s discretion).  At your turn move to the rostrum and speak directly into mike. Try not to read off of paper if possible – Remember you only have 3 minutes.

You still have time to review our TALKING POINTS by going to our FOGG Talking Points link on this website.

Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have further questions by replying to this email.  We are all in this together and we want you to be prepared.

Will look forward to seeing you on Thursday, March 8, 2012.
