Dear Mr. Dunn,
I endorse the concept of commemorating the significant place of Japanese American farmers in the history of the market. Their role in the market' s development and the circumstances of their disappearance must be forever a part of our community's collective memory.
I trust the commission to consider seriously the recommendations of its community advisory board in this project. I wish you well as you make the market thrive.
