Per Kathy, there is an interest group calling older voters in targeted Senate districts urging people to call their state Senator and voice opposition to the gay marriage bill.
Per Jim Splaine many Senators are surprised at how few calls they have been getting. That will change if the campaign is successful and the Senators will hear from a lot of opponents.
So we should call. Here’s the contact information. All phone numbers are Office numbers in the 603 area code (Concord).
|District||Name||Office Phone||Party||Reported Position|
|9||Sheila Roberge||(H) (603)firstname.lastname@example.org||R||Opposed|
|17||John Barnes, Jr.||email@example.com||R||Opposed|
|24||Martha Fuller Clarkfirstname.lastname@example.org||D||Favor|
Some recommendations below the fold.
A couple of recommendations:
- Call the office number (provided above). The state house has a voicemail system, you can call today. Although most Senators provide their home phone numbers, it seems a little risky to interrupt what personal time they have when an office phone is available.
- Know what district you live in and your Senator’s name and call him or her. You can find out here – thanks Vis Unita Fortior!. Every elected official properly pays more attention to the people s/he represents.
- Call your Senator even if s/he is listed as Opposed and say you hope for a change in position.
- Call your Senator even if s/he is from the other party. They represent you.
- Call your Senator even if s/he is listed as Favor and say Thank you.
