Inspired by Mike Panetta’s letter to the editor, let’s put forth a full throated effort to inundate Connecticut Senators Murphy and Blumenthal as well as that of Reps. Himes and Esty with emails seeking their co-sponsorship of the respective D.C. statehood bills (S 1278/HR 1291). Connecticut Reps. DeLauro, Larson, and Courtney already are cosponsors of the House statehood bill but their Nutmeg/Constitution State colleagues are not…yet!
Here’s what we need to do:
Send an email to each office asking that their boss cosponsor the statehood bill.
Ask a family member or friend living in Connecticut to do the same (we really need them to do this for us).
Here’s who to contact & here’s sample text for your email:
Representative Himes: Rachel Kelly, firstname.lastname@example.org
Representative Esty: Dainelle Most, email@example.com
Senator Blumenthal: Sandeep Prasanna, firstname.lastname@example.org
Senator Murphy: Michael Bednarczyk, email@example.com
Representative by Representative, Senator by Senator, state by state we will build a coalition of support that will make D.C. statehood a reality.
Let’s get started with Connecticut!
