Awesome effort.Done. Let's see if I get a response from Mr. cook.
"Dear Mr. Cook,
I know you are a very busy man and appreciate any time you can make to discuss the current situation concerning the Johnson Valley Annex. I'm sure you are well aware of the current situation, so I won't belabor this correspondence with details. I would like to solicit you for 30 minutes of your time at your earliest convenience to hear this constituents input concerning the looming closure of 2/3 of the largest open off road recreation area in the United States. I will accommodate your schedule, so please feel free to pencil me in where appropriate. I live in Hesperia (92345) so I would prefer something close to my area or within ~40mi.
Thank you for your time.
Dan Kiewicz jr"
Paul Cook has been very helpful regarding this base expansion, and I am sure he will love to hear from you as a constituent. Don't give up, he has some pretty good staff people that will be glad to help you get an appointment.
This is a great lead in. Last year a bunch of us shared the responses we received and we had a lot of fun collecting appointments. I was able to meet a handful of Legislators or staff last year.
Congresswoman Bono Mac
I failed On Congressman Calvert, and Senator Boxer.
This year I get to start all over since I now live in Nevada.
Congressman Mark E Amodei
and Senator Dean Heller
I don't think I will get a meeting with Harry Reid, but I will try.
You can use this tool if you don't know your Legislator.
Tool is in the right hand top corner.
