Dear Mr. Boris Miksic,


I am writing this support letter to you in english since I am from Canada and it is easier for me to better express myself. I moved to Croatia 14 years ago, I work as an Air Traffic Controller and I live in Rijeka. As many citizens of this country, I cannot voice how important it is for someone of your stature to be the breath of fresh air this country Croatia desperately needs. I can speak on behalf of many who are fed up with the leadership of this country.....there are far too many issues for me to specifically jot down however being that you are from Minnesota I assume you can relate to the former governor of Minnesota Jesse Ventura who is in my point of view an outstanding politician and whose character is known for being the outsider and challenging the facts and truth (I have read his book and I have seen many of his interviews I believe he is a stand up man, and someone who can start a revolution ie; his latest book "Don't start the revolution without me", that is what Croatia needs today to survive its future, and you can be that person to start it. ). I hope Mr. Miksic you will run for President and like the last time I and many others will vote for you again. This country is corrupt, war torn, unemployment problems, financial problems, social problems, just to name a few....but I am confident that things can change the citizens of this country simply need a shiny light a beacon of security to follow and I am positive that there can and will be results.
    Since I moved to Croatia I am sick and tired of people always complaining but no affirmative action is being made yet alone trying to be made. I want a leader that loves Croatia for what it stands for, to make its children love and be proud of this country not to use it as the so-called politicians today are using their patriotism for personal financial gain.
  I wish you the best and may this time make you the new president of Croatia.

Yours Truly,
Johnny Prgesa

Good Morning, Boris!
I finished reading your book in one breath during this past weekend, prompted by several book requests through the Cortec website. It’s an exciting and enjoyable reading. Best luck on your campaign!
Best regards,
Ming Shen

Subject: Way to go !!!!!

Let me offer my congratulations for your vision and perseverance to achieve being awarded the VpCI exclusively! This will further differentiate Cortec from all the other so called "corrosion protectors."

I really enjoyed the recent Cortec news which is a great way to keep the Cortec family informed.

Dear Boris (and Inez). Many thanks for your hospitality during our visit in Florida. It was great fun! I never believed fishing could be that good and fun but I now understand that finding the right “spot” is what it is all about! The preparation of the fish dinner by Inez was excellent! I already look forward to next time - but then we will have some big grouper also! Once again many thanks for a memorable trip! Best regards Joakim

Boris,

I would like to extend my sincere appreciation for the invitation to attend the Cortec, International Sales Meeting, this past week.

We continue to struggle bringing compostable plastic bags [EARTHSAFE™] into the foodservice distribution market, on a value added basis. Perhaps addressing a product utilizing the Cortec/NatureWorks relationship will produce a product and price point which would make the cost more palatable.

The enthusiasm at the meeting is a wonderful example of what can be accomplished when motivated sales people are armed with unique and cutting edge product technology.

Thank you for your most generous hospitality!

Dear Mr. Miksic,

     We want to thank you for the opportunity you have given us to
work in your company as interns. This internship has been one of the
most important events that will in a certain way model our future
academic life.

     Working in Cortec Corporation was more than pleasant. Our
coworkers were very friendly and eager to help in any way they could,
social and scientific. Working atmosphere was very seminally and
positive. What we particularly liked was team work that wasn't just
formal and that surprised us because it is not easy to achieve that
level of mutual respect. That is something we want to congratulate you
on as a leader of such organization.

     We have gained so much from this experience. We learned how to
work in circumstances different from those we were used to. We felt
like we were part of Cortec's team and as ones we tried to contribute
to its growth. Working in Cortec was all about fun because we didn't
think of it as work. We loved our job, enjoyed doing it and were very
enthusiastic about it. We were given an opportunity not a lot of
people can get. To work in a world known company. To do something you
really like and want to do for the rest of your life. It was like a
dream come true.

     We want to thank you again for this great opportunity. And we
want to thank our coworkers for their support and generosity. We hope
that you are satisfied with our work there and that we made
difference.

Yours sincerely,

                                      Ana Granic

Dear Boris, Congratulations on recently being named finalist for the Minnesota High Tech Association's prestigious Tekne Awards. Being in this elite group is an honor in and of itself, especially given the caliber of innovation represented this year.
We’ve decided nearly 25 years to helping businesses like Cortec Corporation gain the industry awareness and bottom-line success they deserve. Hence, we truly value the accomplishments and vision the Tekne honors – and you and your company’s merit for being recognized.
Again, congratulations!

As an entrepreneur embarking on another business adventure using Cortec technology I find it inspiring that Men and Woman even in this day are still able to live their dream of building for the future. It consoles me to same degree to think that the future can be positive on with the people like Mr. Miksic who push a head regardless of the risk to make this a better place. Bravo Mr. Miksic and the best to you and your team in all your future endeavors which I hope to be able to contribute some day. I remain,
James Thibault

I read your book a while ago and I wrote you a short letter, congratulating you on your success. ( Both my father's and my mother's parents came to Minnesota from Yugoslavia/Slovenia). They settled on the Iron Range in Minnesota... I am vey proud of my heritage and the strong work ethic they instilled.

In any event, I am simply writing today to express my sadness on the terrible accident that occured this morning in Winsconsin. I pray for the healing of the families, community and your compny.

Just FYI, Boochasmom is the name I use... we named or springer spaniel Boocha, which I was told meand "cabbage head" in Slovenian. He was dear!
