Here are a few tips for those who may need them... Your letter does not need to be long and eloquent. You only need to state your position on a particular subject and then tell your rep why they should support or oppose the subject. If it is a particular bill then provide the number and title for them. This shows that you are actually looking at the bill and gives you some credibility and it also gives them heads up on something they might not have seen yet. Don't be rude and keep your comments civil no matter how much you diasgree with the person you are writing too. Inflamatory remarks and derogartory comments only make you look bad and gives the person you are writing to a reason to dismiss your letter. Be sure to use the proper title for who you are writing to in your greeting and be sure to use a proper closing. A well written letter will get much more consideration from you elected official than a hastily written rant. If there is anyting anyone wants to add to this then feel free.
