Totally confused

Melissa Damiano is a little confused in "Shame on you, Union," May 29, 2005
I must tell you how disappointed I was to read your article on the remodeling of The Union offices (May 21). I cannot believe that a company that in many ways relies on local advertising dollars to stay in business would actually use a contractor from Roseville to perform necessary work on your building. I'm sure there are many wonderful local contractors that would have appreciated the business. Why go out of the county to hire someone to remodel your office? You set a very poor example and took much needed small business dollars out of the county.
Just for the record the Prime Contractor on the Union remodel is Keoni Allen, a local contractor. It has been a huge project to rebuild The Union building while keeping the newspaper running. My hat is off to Keoni and his crew for working nights and weekends to get the job done.
