Finding and Contacting your Elected Officials
There are multiple ways you can interact and educate your elected officials about the issues facing your business and potentially hurting your business’s bottom line. When reaching out to your elected official, remember to introduce yourself, include the issues concerning you and your business, how many employees could be affected by the issue/s, and how long you’ve been a constituent.
