To whom it may concern:

I'm Brian Brady, currently GIS Administrator for the city of Yuma, Arizona.

Linc Clay graciously referred me to your group, suggesting you may be able to help.

I've been living and working in Yuma for the last five years, but would like to return to Florida, where I was born and where my parents, brothers, and sisters live.

I also very much want to be near my nineteen-year-old son. He's presently a student at the University of Central Florida but intends to transfer to Florida State.

I've been in GIS for many years, was appointed by Arizona's
governor to the Arizona Geographic Information Council (AGIC), and am a member of the National States Geographic Council.

Before moving to Yuma I worked in Enterprise GIS development for the federal government at Kennedy Space Center, and taught GIS at Brevard Community College on an adjunct basis.

I would very much appreciate any assistance you may be able to offer.

Thank you.
