Write a Letter/Send an E-Mail

The most effective letter or note you can send an elected official is one that is very personal, explaining the reason or reasons you want him or her to support the Finish 3132 initiative.

  • You don’t have to make it long, just personal. Remember that even a few sentences that are sincere and unique will be far better than simply signing the same letter everyone else is sending.
  • You can be firm, but don’t be rude or insulting. Be sure to thank the person for considering your request.
  • Form letters are not taken as seriously, so a handwritten note or a letter that has your name and address at the top will differentiate your letter and request.

Here are some other great tips to get you started:

  1. Indicate who you are and where you live:
    Example: For the past eight years I have lived in Acadiana Place. . .
  2. Indicate your major concern or concerns:
    Example: As I drive along Highway 3132, I am amazed that it has not yet been completed . . .
    Example: Highway 3132 was intended to be an industrial route to support truck traffic . . .
    Example: This area has grown tremendously and the traffic has increased. . .
  3. Indicate the action you want the person to take:
    Example: As my city council representative, I hope you will pledge to . . .
    Example: As my state representative, I ask you to . . .
  4. Conclusion:
    Example: Thank you for considering my request, and I hope you will . . .
