Why You Should Contact Your Rep’s District Office

by Countable | 11.8.17

Transcript:

You probably already know that each of your lawmakers has an office in D.C., but did you know that each one of them has at least one state or district office? Well, these are the offices where you’re more likely to get in touch with them. So what’s the main difference?

Well, the D.C. office is more focused on legislation, while the local offices are more focused on local matters. So they’re basically the face of that lawmaker to the community, and that means they’re there to serve you. They’re answering phone calls, responding to requests, keeping track of complaints and praise from constituents and handling specific needs. So, contact a local office. The staffers there are probably from your community and familiar with it. Plus - bonus points - these offices are public. So you can walk into them and have a personal conversation with those staffers. So, go to your lawmakers’ websites to find out where their offices are located.

    I believe democrats have the perfect case to take the republicans to court over the passing of the tax bill. They didn’t follow proper protocol, they pass a bill that was not fully written (what to keep them from adding what ever they fell like to the bill or removing whatever they fell like from the bill), what’s the president for voting on a bill that wasn’t fully written or writing a bill well it’s being voted on or after the vote. The republicans took Obama to court for less so Dems get a backbone and fight this thing. Don’t just do nothing.

    Donald Trumps racist comments are divisive, damaging to our nation and our reputation in the world. Racists do not belong in the White House and cannot run our country. I support impeachment or trump needs to step down. Those of you who are silent to his comments are also part of the problem. Your silence defines YOU as a racist. Trump is destroying the Republican Party. He is destroying America. Trump is a liar. How can he be trusted to run our country? Step up!!!!! Do something good for the USA.
