A few months ago, the Granites decided to send a letter to all schools in the Granitic community saying that they were concerned about the state of the schools and the state’s healthcare system.

“They want to do the right thing,” the spokesperson said, “but they don’t have the money.
They’re working very hard to make sure that they don
