Good Luck with your Letter Drops!
By Donna Smith and Judy Hess
Our Letter Drops “officially” take place Wednesday, November 15. This month, time is of the essence for the House Letter. The TAX BILL may be voted on as early as this Thursday. Not so the Senate, so the fire drill is the House only.
If you would like to hear our November Letter Drop Call, you can listen to the call recording HERE.
If you intend to drop a letter this month, please email Judy Hess HERE with this simple info:
If to a Congressmember – the name, CD number and city (e.g. Costa CA-16 Fresno)
If to a Senator – the name, the state and the city (e.g. Boxer CA Fresno)
For this month only, when you have dropped your letter, please call or text Mike Fox at 727-320-4502
New to this or rusty?
Here’s the drill – there’s the “before” part, and the “after” part!
Before you go:
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org as above
- Download and save the letter(s) you intend to deliver
- Insert the correct information in the blanks
- Save again, and print
Now you are ready to deliver your letter! This is the ground game. If you feel comfortable discussing it with a staffer, you can make an appointment – but if not, merely introduce yourself and advise you are delivering our PDA letter with important information to relay to the Representative/Senator. If you can get a picture of yourself presenting the letter, that is awesome, but not required!
After you drop your letter:
As soon as you deliver (so we can do the air game):
- Call or text Judy at 559-907-0279 that you delivered and where (State and CD no or Senator)
- OR email me at email@example.com that you delivered and where
- If you got a picture, email it to Janis@pdamerica.org with where you delivered and the names of those in the picture
The air game is this – Mike Fox’s Phone Team makes calls to the office(s) where you dropped the letter(s). Something to the effect of, “Hey this is ____, calling to tell you that the letter ____ dropped at your office today is very important to me. Please make sure your boss is fully aware of the legislation and our requests!”
Until next time…
