Communicating Effectively With Your Representative
On the subject of action alerts, here are some helpful tips on how to contact your representatives effectively from the Jefferson County League's newsletter:
A quick telephone call to your representative is easiest. Most legislators count calls supporting or opposing bills and those from their own constituents count the most.
Email is another good way to communicate with your legislator. Here are some tips to communicate your position to your representative:
□ State the bill number in the subject line
□ Keep the email short and to the point
□ If you have a personal story relevant to the issue, include it
□ Use bullets when possible to make it more readable
