Dear Mayor Alioto,
My name is Alan. I am in room 4 at Central School in San Carlos Calif. I saw a film and it had Alcatraz on it and our teacher asked me what I think you could do with Alcatraz. I said it would be nice if you made a big amusement park on it. It would be like Disneyland. My teacher told the class that one man said make it a big gambling casino. That was kind of dumb because it is just be a big mess. The park would not be for one or two people. It would be for the whole world.
Thank you
Alan Lewerenz
