Dear Mr Lay-

May I re-introduce myself. Several years ago we met when you returned to the Navy Supply Corps School, Athens, Georgia to receive your Distinguished Alumni Award and recognition. My name is Bob Gregory and I am a retired Navy Supply Corps Captain, living in Athens. I am now the Vice President of the Navy Supply Corps Foundation and also direct the Distinguished Alumni Program. I do management consulting here in Athens.

I have read Enron Corp. is considering building a gas powered power plant here in Athens-Clarke County. From my understanding, the plant is to be built in an industrially zoned park. I believe the plant would be a natural for the area. The project appears to be moving though the county's planning bueracracy, however I note some of the votes have been close. As you can see in the attached article, the environmental folks are starting to raise their heads in protest.

I personally believe the plant is a great project and favor it enthusiastically. To me, it is a "no brainer". I do believe, however, Enron could make a public relations "coup de tat". The idea of a member of the Navy Supply Corps School's Distinguished Alumni deciding to build a major new plant here in Athens, Georgia, could bring a lot of good press for both the plant and Enron, Inc in particular.

I would be pleased to assist the Enron effort and help disseminate your Supply Corps connection here in Athens. I have discussed your Distinguished Alumni affiliation with Mayor Doc Eldridge. He is in full support of the power plant. He is a great supporter or the Navy Supply Corps School and your Supply Corps Distinguished Alumni-Athens-Clarke County connection

Obliviously, I will not do anything further without acknowledgement and authorization from your office. I do believe we can quell the "natives" and dramatically reduce the environmentalist's influence against the project. Please advise. GO NAVY!!
