Legislators are public servants - they serve the public for very little pay, and are away from their families for months while working at the Capitol.  They work hard to get re-elected to a job that can be both incredibly frustrating and very rewarding.  They get many complaints and requests, but often never hear the words "thank you."  Please take time to write a note to your State Senator and State Representative.  Handwritten notes are the best, but e-mails and typewritten letters are okay too (especially if your handwriting is like mine!). 

You can thank them for passing something you liked during this session or something you read about in the newspaper.  Or you can just simply thank them for their service to the state and to you as their contsitutent.  Let them know the issues you care about, and ask them to keep you updated ths summer and let you know when they are having events in the area.
