The law, in its majestic equality, forbids the rich as well as the poor to sleep under bridges, to beg in the streets, and to steal bread. – Anatole France, novelist, essayist, Nobel laureate (1844-1924)

Please be respectful at all times when communicating with your government representatives – yelling at them, or calling them names, or pointing out their faults will not help your cause.  It’s fine to disagree with them – in fact, it’s when you disagree with their positions that you most need to tell them that! – but please do so in a civil, respectful, and informative manner (explain why you disagree).

Very often, you will not get to speak to the representative personally, but their staff keep records (email, letters, and phone calls) of where constituents stand on issues and bills, and present those records to the representatives.
