. MAYOR JOSEPH A. DOORLEY, JR.
November 4, 1967
Dear Ivan:
I have been informed by members of my own
Congressional delegation, who f ully support the concept of
the poverty program , and from other numerous sources that
the a 1thoriza tion bill for the Office of Economic Opportunity
is ~n for "rough sledding" and a s one newspaper source said
"a real bloodletting". Needless to say I do not nave to tell
any munici pal chief executive what this will mean to the
programs under way i n his oity .
1
It i s not my i ntent i on to be gored to death
without witnes s ing the bull in a ction . I urge those of you
who share my concern t o j oin me in Washingt on t his week s o
t hat we can properl y demonstrat e our i nteres t .
I may be contacted ~t my office on Monday or
at t he Congressional Hotel in Washington on Tuesday,
· Wednesday and Thursday.
truly Yt,urs,


. oeph A, ~


Jr,
Ma.7 or of Providence
