    I support a vote to accept the HAB's factual accounting of the Bruce story and I support the plaque language proposed. I find the substance and the tone of the proposed plaque to be appropriate and accurately reflects the facts described in the history report. It needs to replace the existing wording. I believe the HAB considered input from multiple pertinent and credible sources.
