Letters to Politicians
Letters to politicians are letters written to people who are active in government usually as elected officials. Like the majority of business people, most politicians do not have enough time to read and respond to letters from their constituents. Your letter is most likely read by an assistant who discusses it briefly with the politician and drafts a response according to that discussion. Therefore, your letter needs to be clear and to the point so that the assistant understands its content completely. You don't want the letter to end up in the stack of unheeded letters, do you?
Personal letters to politicians could be one of the most effective tools for change. Before drafting one, do your homework to make sure that you are writing to the right person. Address the recipient with respect. State the objective of your letter and briefly introduce your issue. Mention your interest in the issue at hand and any relevant credentials. Introduce questions that will provoke the recipient to respond. Suggest ways in which the issue can be resolved. Thank the politician for any positive action he/she has taken in the past on similar issues. Close the letter with a call to action.
