Bob Marquardt is a sighted member of our Cincinnati chapter.  Some may think of him as "that guy who brings Lisa", but he is a dedicated member in his own wright.  
Last night at the chapter meeting, I asked for commitments to help with our effort in contacting state senators to save the library.  Bob volunteered.  Below is the letter which he composed and sent to each of the people on the list I sent him.  
It is simple, honest, direct -- and exactly what we need.

If you feel a little nudge, it is not your imagination!  Thanks for your help.
And Here's Bob's letter:

Sen Gary Cates

I am a sighted member of the National Federation of the Blind and I am writing to you in reference to the Cincinnati Library for th Blind. It is my understanding hat no funds have been allocated for this very important resource for the blind for the coming fiscal year.


I have helped numerous blind citizens of Cincinnati with transportation to get to and from the library over he past few years and I know, first hand, how important this facility is to their lives.


Please reconsider the funding for this facility and keep it available to  those who need it.


Thanks for your help.
