Dear David:

I just wanted to thank you for the econometric model you created for us to evaluate the relationship between taxes and the economy. Its debut was a tremendous success. Mayor Giuliani embraced our analysis and helped us to bring tax policy into the middle of the mayoral campaign.

The model is a tremendous tool for helping to leverage our influence on public policy. I'm convinced it would be an invaluable tool for other think tanks as well. We appreciate your involvement and look forward to working with you again.
