Reminder - Take action now to save LPB's Educational Services

Dear Educator:
I am writing you as Chair of the Friends of LPB board. As you may have
heard, the governor's office is calling for a $656,000 budget cut by the
end of June and a potential $2 million cut beginning in July. To do this
LPB will have to eliminate local programming and reduce up to 20% of our
staff. We may even have to go off the air on one or two days a week.
There simply is not this much money in our budget to survive these cuts.
We need your help.
If you have invested your time and money in our future, please call,
e-mail and write the Governor and your legislators now! Remember,
private money already pays for all of our programs and education
services! LPB's quality service has taken 35 years to build! Don't let
it be destroyed now.
