Message to the City Counsel
May 7, 2013
My name is Preston Collins. I am a retired electrical engineer with over 45 years of experience in the electric utility industry. I come to you today to express my concern about the lack of public awareness on matters of crucial importance.
History was made in Washington, DC, last week starting on Monday morning and lasting through Friday evening when the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure convened to hear the testimony of eyewitnesses of what has come to be referred to as UFO phenomenon. The committee hearing the testimony consisted of six former members of the United States Congress including Senator Mike Gravel of Alaska and former representatives Lynn Woolsey of California, Roscoe G. Bartlett of Maryland, Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick of Michigan, Darlene Hooley of Oregon and Merrill Cook of Utah.
At least 35 witnesses gave testimony including researchers, retired military personnel, and former government employees. Several were from other countries. Prominent among the witnesses was former astronaut, Dr Edgar Mitchell, and former Canadian Defense Minister, Paul Hellyer

As a prelude to this event, there was a documentary movie that premiered in Los Angeles on April 22, one week prior to these hearings. This documentary was produced by Dr. Steven Greer founder of the Disclosure Project. He was also a witness. The documentary is named Sirius and after watching it you dont recognize the double meaning of this title, you could have a serious learning disability.
Public opinion polls reveal that there is growing percentage of the population that is clued in to the reality of this subject. The Yelm community has a very high percentage that not only believes in their existence, but has witnessed them. I remind you of the incident that occurred here in Yelm during the construction of Wal-Mart when construction workers witnessed a space ship that appeared over the site. This was reported in the NVN.
My point in all of this is that you, the Yelm City Commission, should not be less informed about this subject than your constituents. Therefore, I suggest you educate yourselves by viewing all of the Sirius documentary and as much of the testimony of the witnesses as possible. I further recommend that you view it as a group and do it in an open forum and invite the public and city employees.
Thank you for your time and attention. If I may be of assistance in this matter, I am at your service.
