Since I’ve been writing postcards to elected officials, I thought I’d share them with those who might be interested in sending out similar messages to their elected officials: https://www.tdwalker.net/postcards/
The templates on this pages are .doc files, and you can update them with your information and the information of your elected officials. You can send them as is or update the text as you’d like.
I’m putting the postcards up on my personal website, but linking them here because a.) these cover many of the issues I’ve wanted to blog about but haven’t, b.) they’re probably of interest to readers here, and c.) I wanted to put these out here to make things quick and easy for those who want to write to elected officials about these topics. Some of the language is specific to Texas (see my “oh, hey, you like business! the HEROES Act is good for business! so go vote for it!” to my senators), but for the most part, these can be generalized for audiences across the US.
Instructions for printing and postage are on the page as well. The /postcards page isn’t linked through my website menu, so if you go to the front page, you won’t find it there. (Also, there’s an annoying popup on my front page asking if you’d like to join my email list in exchange for a near-future political feminist science fiction novelette, so don’t go through there if, like me, you don’t like pop-ups. (Seriously, if you want the novelette, and you’re a reader here, just email me.))
If you have any suggestion for future postcards, please let me know.
