So, I called my Congressman’s local office, as a D.C. insider suggested. As luck would have it, the person who answered the phone is a fly fisherman.
I alerted him to the new House bills that have been introduced. I think I’m the first constituent to report about them. He was very empathetic, listened carefully, and didn’t rush me. Then, I got this cool and unexpected email back:
Thank you for the call. I’ve put our discussion into our system, outlining the issues surrounding HR 621 and 622. Now that they are in our system, the Congressman will be notified. I encourage you to keep calling so that this issue gets moved further to the top.
He also emailed me the name and phone number for the Congressman’s scheduler and suggested that I ask for a meeting. So, yeah, I’m going to ask to meet Congressman Joe Kennedy III. Wish me luck!
Hope you all can make the time to call your Congressman’s local office?
