Below is an outline of what a letter to your elected representative should look like. Don’t forget your rough draft is due on Monday. Its worth 25 pts.
Salutation (E.g. Senator Toomey, Representative Doyle, Governor Wolfe)
Paragraph 1 – Explain who you are and where you’re from (what community or district) so they know you’re from a place they represent.
Paragraph 2 – Explain what issue you’re concerned about and how it affects you.
Paragraph 3 – Describe what 2-3 specific actions you’d like your representative to take. What future laws/actions would you like them to support or not support? What do you want them to actually work toward.
Closing (E.g. Sincerely, Respectfully, Thank You)
