E-LISTS ARE AN INVALUABLE GRASS ROOTS TOOL
The TML staff has been gathering e-mail addresses from city officials (elected or appointed) who are willing to provide testimony during the 2011 legislative session, want to be kept “in the loop” on certain subject matters, or are willing to simply provide their perspective on a particular legislative matter.
These “E-lists” are the primary way that TML staff contacts city officials regarding harmful legislation. In many cases, bills will be set for committee hearings with essentially no notice. When that happens, an e-mail will go out to the appropriate E-list asking for information or action on your part. If you can, please respond as indicated. Legislators need to hear from their constituents more than from TML staff.
It’s not too late to participate in the E-List project; simply go to http://www.tml.org/genform/E-List.asp and fill out the online form. If you have any questions, please contact JJ Rocha at firstname.lastname@example.org or 512-231-7400.
