The money’s there. Really, politics is nothing but the fair, equitable and trustworthy distribution of finite resources, I think we need to do a better job of it.”Shuttleworth was able to raise over $52,000 for veteran’s services. center_img KUSI Newsroom Cross country walk for veteran’s awareness raises over $50k Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitterlast_img read more
