*Here is a link with some some general guidelines on how to contact representatives

*Also, Please check out this google document with lots of information on who to contact and issues to contact them about. It even includes sample scripts. It’s titled, “We’re His Problem Now”. Great resource!

*It may also be a good idea to contact Committee Members on the U.S.  House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, particularly Oversight Committee Chairman, Jason Chaffetz. Here’s an article that may be of interest.

 

Please contact me via Meetup page or Facebook if you have any other suggestions for this list!
