Contact Your Legislators
Every legislator makes at least one campaign promise: REPRESENTATION! Ensure that your legislator understands your needs and the needs of your community by reaching out to them through a phone call or email. You will find all of all legislators at the General Assembly website, or you may reach them by phone by dialing (919) 733-4111 and asking to speak with your Senator or Representative.
General email may be sent to:
Write a Letter to the Editor
One effective way to keep an issue before your community is to write a letter to the editor (LTE) of your local newspaper or blog. You should also send copies of the letter to your elected officials. There are more than 40 newspapers published daily in North Carolina. And there are another 170 weekly publications that will take your letters.
To make it easy for you, we’ve created lists—sorted by county—so you can easily locate your local newspapers.
