Attorney-


 


I just this a.m. viewed the reply to my inquiry of last night ( 8 hours+ later ), I Thank You for the statute citation and interpretation, and in attempting to finish the site visit and respond to the rating request I clicked "good" and "excellent" and twice got a screen reading "Sorry you were dissatisfied." Hope that is just technology amuck and doesn't have adverse effect

I will let them no. Thank you.
