Dear [Recipients Name],

I have come to the knowledge that a certain group has been spreading black propaganda against the current plan to upgrade the current facilities of the city hall. The project to improve the city hall is not just some scheme to channel more money into the mayor's pocket as some would like to believe, but it shall go on to building new facilities that would cater to all of the needs of all the residents of (name of city).

Mayor Edmunds has served our city tirelessly throughout her term, and she has given no reason for anyone to doubt her plans. Please join me in voicing our support for a better (name of city)!

Sincerely,

[Senders Name]
