Interview with Russell Oswald

And when you presented, when you called the Governor and told him about the 28 demands. If you could just tell me about what you sense was of the demands that you could agree to them and the Governor's response.


I, afterwards called the Governor and told him that we had worked out, ah, this agenda, ah, that, ah, ah, Mr. Dunbar and I both felt that this was reasonable and the direction we had been wanting to go for a long time and the question now was, even during the big financial difficulty that was in the State was in at that time, did he feel that he was able to help us attain those, those goals that we put in the demands. And he said, Yes, he would definitely work hard with the legislature to get the money. And, he agreed with me, that these demands seemed alright and he approved.
