First I want to take the time to thank everyone who was able to attend the meeting
yesterday, I really appreciate it. Yesterday's meeting kind of brought into prospective where we are going with this issue,
and how we are going to really get to the goal of having Conjugal Visit's. Please keep in mind that this is not something that
will happen over night, it is going to be a up hill battle and we are really going to have to put in all that we got in order
to make a difference. We have decided to put in a bill which request a task force ( to study the possibilities of the Visit's),
to study the cost of having conjugal visit's in the state of Maryland. And we are going to gear it towards the way Mississippi
has them. They are also the most liberal state in allowing almost all inmates to participate. Now remember you do have to
be married. I will also put up on the website all the requirements for each of the states as far as behavior level etc..,
this should be done hopefully by Saturday so check then. I'm also going to try to put up information to ask for donations
to fund this organization, if anyone has any ideas or has done this before please any input or help would be greatly appreciate.
I also want to address some of the issues brought up from some of the ladies that attended. It was that they are concerned
that allot of family's or wives do not have the capability to access the internet or have email. I am aware of this, I have
provided my personal P.O. Box and phone for those cases and I will also give to all of you ladies. But please understand that
all of this by my own funding and I am limited to what I can do with out any help. So please your assistance in spreading
this information by word of mouth or by printed out information to family's and wives that can not access the Internet
is greatly appreciated. Feel free to give them my contact information to contact me with any questions.

I would also like to set up a meeting for all of us to get together and draft this bill that we are going to
present to the Maryland General Assembly, I need everyone's help and input on this. So please everyone we can meet in a central
location and have breakfast or lunch and discuss our plans. So please everyone email me let me know what date and time is
good for everyone and let me know what is a central location for everyone, from that I will get a time date and location that
is most convent for everyone to be able to attend. Please feel free at any time to contact me with any information you might
have come across, or suggestions I am always open for anything and appreciate and suggestions, input that can help us better
this group and reach or goal which is being with or loved ones while incarcerated. Off course the ultimate goal is home for
all of our loved ones.
Thank You Everyone
