"Article I of the Constitution gives us the right to elect our representatives in Washington, but also the right to do so much more including the right of free speech, the right of association and the right to express our opinions about the actions of our elected officials. Our elected officials cannot represent us well if they do not know what we are thinking and experiencing.
My constituents are encouraged to send a personal letter or email - not just a form letter. We do listen when you speak to us and it is far more effective when we can hear your position in your own words." -Congressman Spencer Bachus, 6th District, Alabama
