Gang,

   Congress.org has a spot to enter your zip and then takes you to a 
form to email all the elected officials in your district.  I found it 
when I was googling Rep Bart Stupak + CALEA because someone else 
had already wrote their reps asking them for endorsement!  So I did too.

Many of the Congress Critters don't give out real email addys...they only
take emails using the forms on their websites.

Consider it done. Here's a link to the page where everyone can locate 
their representative and send them email.

Yes, when it comes to dealing with the government, the time is never 
past for changing minds. The government's job is to respond to the needs 
of the people. When enough citizens request review and revision of the 
rules, the government must either respond or be voted out of office. 
Government is plenty responsive... as long as the citizens make their 
desires be known.

I agree - Marlon - it's never too late to change laws or minds.

What could I contribute in order to help see this through ?

Re: [WISPA] WISPA task

2007-05-02 Thread Frank Muto

FYI.
Letter writing tips from our ISPCON Spring 2005 conference program.

The letter is the most popular choice of communication with a congressional 
office. When writing, use fax or e-mail due to the delays of mail delivery 
resulting from the threat of Anthrax and other bio hazards. Write your 
letter on professional letterhead. Be sure to include your full name, 
address, phone number and request a reply.


Your letter will be read by an aide.  While legislators themselves are 
usually not able to read all of the correspondence sent to their offices, 
that does not mean your letter will not have an impact.  Congressional 
Representatives rely heavily on their aides to provide them with concise and 
thorough information.  Aides keep a running tally of letters received for or 
against a given position and report the results regularly to the 
Congressperson.  A well-written, thought provoking letter can educate an 
aide, thereby influencing the legislator.


1.The purpose of your letter should be stated in the first paragraph.
2.Make the topic clear in your first sentence.  For example; I'm writing to 
ask your support of.
3.Give reasons for your position and include personal experience or concrete 
examples.
4.Use your own words and experiences.  Personal letters and real stories are 
more compelling.

5.Ask a question.  By doing so you may receive a personal response.
6.A one-page letter is best.  Only write a longer letter if necessary for 
clarity.

7.Be polite, positive and constructive.  Don't plead and never threaten.
8.Stay on topic.  If you have other issues write another letter pertinent to 
that topic.

Um, are you too lazy to use Google or any number of other websites to 
find your Congress Critter's email??


Do you know what your zip code is?
Then plug it in here:  http://www.rad-info.net/fcc/ (in the

Um, if you make it easy then people will do it. If it's too hard or 
takes too much time, people won't.


And, for whatever it's worth, I've already emailed over 20 of my reps

On the old WISPA website, I had a drop down list that took you to each state
webpage.  From those webpages you could find your congressmen.  I bet Matt
Larsen would put the zipcode search on the new page.
