On the Service at the Greek Consulate in Atlanta

To the Editor:

I recently had to apply to the Greek Consulate in Atlanta for the issuance of a power of attorney. Initially, I contacted Mrs. Alexandra Papachristou by phone and email. The follow-up and the whole process up to its issuance, signature, and receipt was so impeccable and impressive – something that one rarely encounters in the Greek public services. When on February 2, we personally went to the Consulate to sign and receive the power of attorney, the kindness and the whole attitude of Mrs. Papachristou and the employees we spoke with made us feel like we were in a friendly home. This prompted me to write this short letter for publication in The National Herald in order to publicly express my thanks to Mrs. Papachristou and all the staff of the Consulate. Such services need both recognition and praise from us.

I wish all Greek public services would imitate this Consulate.

Yours sincerely,

Symeon Ioannidis
