Write your Representative(s)

Do you want to send your elected representatives a message?  Perhaps about cuts to SNAP (food stamp) benefits?

Well, good.  You can send the same or very similar message to six elected people, all of whom represent you.  A two sentence message is as impactful as several paragraphs.  Hint:  take a look at Matthew 25: 34-45   Matthew25 NIV – The Parable of the Ten Virgins – “At – Bible Gateway

Every elected person listed below maintains staff, who read and tally every communication that they receive, and then the staff report the number and content of the messages received to the elected person whom they serve.  Most have a routine along the lines of when x number of messages or letters on a particular topic are received, the Member will make a public statement about the issue.

So, yes:  elected people pay attention to letters.  And perhaps getting “a load off of your chest” may make you feel good, in addition.
