With lawmakers – state Senators and Assembly Members – representing hundreds of thousands of constituents, does your phone call, letter, or email on a key piece of education legislation or the state budget really matter?
The answer is resounding "yes."
Lawmakers very often receive less than a dozen calls, letters, or emails on legislation that is of major importance. Legislators and their staff rightly conclude that for every contact they receive, hundreds or thousands of their constituents who haven't contacted them feel the same way. So when we ask you to contact your lawmaker, think of the impact your action carries.
