ENGAGING OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS

To be timely, one needs to follow the news.

Immediately, although the Senate has no say, object to Steve Bannon as Chief Strategist to the President due to his history of bigotry and bias. There is no place for such a person, who most likely could not pass top security clearance, to be in the White House.

As each cabinet position is announced, let the Senators know why such a person is objectionable if, indeed they are. ( For example, the name mentioned for Attorney General is the current Secretary of State in Kansas, Kris Kobach, who writes the anti-immigration laws and legislation and distributes it via ALEC to the various states. The anti immigrant housing regulation in Fremont came from him.)

Suggested script:

I’m calling to ask Senator Fischer/ Sasse to oppose the appointment of so and so to the cabinet position of______________ because he/she does not represent American values as demonstrated by____ name the behavior(s).

Most often the staffer will ask you your name and maybe address or just city. They will not give you any information only take information. Typically, one will get a standard letter with a canned response related to the topic one called about.

The process itself feels quite unsatisfactory. However, tallies are kept and reported to the Senator/Representative. Do it every day. in other words, let them know you know what is going on and demand action. (Fischer supports Trump. Sasse has been anti Trump from the beginning. Fischer claims to represent her constituents. Sasse wants to run for President in 2020.)
