Inspired by Mike Panetta’s letter to the editor, let’s put forth a full throated effort to inundate Connecticut Senators Murphy and Blumenthal with emails seeking their co-sponsorship of the respective D.C. statehood bills (S 1278). The entire Connecticut House Delegation (Reps. DeLauro, Larson, Esty, Himes, and Courtney) already are cosponsors of the House statehood bill but their Nutmeg/Constitution State Senate 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:
Senator Blumenthal: Sandeep Prasanna, email@example.com
Senator Murphy: Michael Bednarczyk, firstname.lastname@example.org
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!
