There has been a lot of news lately about elected officials missing town halls and avoiding constituents. This week’s call is to urge them to create more town halls for you.
Call your 2 Senators and House Rep, but focus on the one’s you know are not scheduling town halls.
Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [CITY, ZIP].
I'm calling to let [SENATOR/REP’S NAME] know that I would very much like to attend a town hall and communicate in person about my ideas for how to better represent me. Are there any events on your schedule that will feature a live, in-person Q&A session?
IF YES: Great! Thank you! I appreciate [Senator/Representative NAME] making the commitment to connect with constituents!
IF NO: That's disappointing. The State Work Session is intended specifically for these sorts of meetings. It's really important to me to be able to speak with my legislator face-to-face. Please tell [SENATOR/REP’S NAME] that I expect to see town halls on the calendar for the next State Work Session in March. Thanks!
