Dear Governor LePage,
Greetings to you sir, in Christ’s Name!Just a word of encouragement from a Black, Conservative, Patriotic, Clergy, who totally agrees and realizes the attacks you face in the liberal media!I am aware of the problems you face, with the drug epidemic in your state. I am a good friend Hal Shurtleff, whom you met with on April 4th of this year.
As a former heroin addict from 1966 to 1976, I can testify that everything you say in regard to drug dealers and addicts is true. I have been clean and sober since 1977 and went on to earning a Master of Divinity Degree from Harvard University in 1996. Since then, I have worked as a Correctional Chaplain at various institutions, and now at the ripe young age of 72yrs, I speak on substance abuse issues as opportunities arise!
If I can be of assistance, in any way, do not hesitate to contact me.
Reverend Steven Louis Craft, M.Div
