Citizens for Space Exploration
I have been actively working with the Florida sector of the Citizens for Space Exploration as the annual Washington D.C trip is approaching at the end of May. The Citizens for Space Exploration is an organization comprised of multi-state taxpayers who support America's investment in space exploration. The organization represents private citizens, small business owners, students, teachers, space and non-space business representatives, and county and municipal officials. Together, our mission is to promote awareness of the benefits of human space exploration and support for NASA and the US Space Exploration Policy. To help out with the trip, I have been gathering the biographies along with the budgeted NASA funding for the 2008 fiscal year. These two pieces of information will be placed in the folders that the groups will take with them to their appointments with the congressional members and staff. I will be sponsored to attend this year by Ensco Inc. and am looking forward to going to the Hill to advocate the importance of supporting the space program.
