Dear [Recipients Name],

I have read through your stand on the ordinance that implements the ban on anti-government films, books or documentaries. Firmly, yet with due respect, I disagree with the proposal.

The materials mentioned above are products of creative minds that intend only to express how they feel and how they see the system as a whole. It does not precisely reflect their opinions about particular persons but the government in its entirety. Banning their works is an outright disrespect and violation of one's freedom to express himself.

Another thing that needs to be stressed out is the more we keep something from the public, the more it will stir their curiosity. People will be ignorant of the realities of t if what he world if what they see and hear are focused only on one entity. So I suggest that we also give these films and books a place in society. People have his or her judgment on the matter.

Letters to Government Officials

Letters to government officials are letters written to any person who works and acts in an official capacity for the government. The recipients of such letters could be congressmen, governors, or even the president. There are many reasons why you may want to write to a government official. Maybe some roads in your area need reconstruction and proper lighting. Perhaps there is a curfew in your town which has made it impossible for you to do night shifts. Whatever the reason, the letter must be formal, respectful, and well-worded.

When writing letters to government officials, you need to decide the official to whom you want to direct the letter. Start by introducing yourself and clearly stating the reason for your letter. Explain how the issue at hand affects you and other people in your group. Explain your personal stand on it and the reason for your position. Offer suggestions that you think can solve the problem. Emphasize important information by bolding or underlining. Try to keep the letter short, preferably one page. Wrap it up by thanking the recipient in advance for reading the letter and considering your thoughts. Type the letter or write it in clear, legible handwriting.
