Campaign Update – Montgomery County, Pennsylvania responds it is NOT a Sister City to Gwanak, South Korea
We have received a response today, October 4, 2016, regarding our Sister City Campaign with the Seoul/Gwanak District, South Korea, and Montgomery County, Pennsylvania . The Director of Commerce for Montgomery County, Ms. DiGiorgio, has informed us that Montgomery County does not have a Sister City connections with any international region.
Our Sister City Campaign had been launched based upon information obtained from Governors Association of Korea.
We are uncertain how this inaccurate information was streamlined to world media. With this confirmation given by Montgomery County of its nonparticipation with a Sister City, we will now close our Sister City Campaign, and online petition.
We extend our gratitude to the leadership of Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, for responding to our petition so quickly. We also send our heartfelt thanks to all in support of our work, who have taken action to speak out against the cruelty to dogs and cats in the Seoul/Gwanak District.
