I'd just like to pass on a little information. Since I announced a few weeks back that I'm running for congress,I've met several senators & congressmen/congresswomen. I've asked each one the question, What is the best way for people to make their voices heard in DC? Every single one gave me the same answer...........Send your senators & congress representatives "HAND WRITTEN LETTERS". The reason they need to be hand written is because emails & faxes are scanned by a machine which automatically sends out a form letter to the sender. HAND WRITTEN LETTERS go through a a machine that detects toxcins or whatever and are then hand delivered. Since they are HAND WRITTEN, they must be opened by hand and read. This works even better if you write them at their local offices because they aren't scanned by everything there. So the bottom line is, if you want your letter read & answered, HAND WRITTEN!! Sure it takes time,but at least you won't be wasting your time.
