There are two calls you should really make today. No, it’s not a hallmark holiday, no you don’t need to call the florist to get flowers for your secretary. Really, it’s not Blogger Appreciation day (though, if you want to drop off a bag of unmarked bills for me, I’m sure arrangements could be made…). It’s time to give two Senators a call.
Yes, I did just see you wince. Your shoulders also dropped, I saw that too. But pick up the phone. It’s time to do some work. Your Targets? Senators Webb (D-VA) and Specter (R-PA). Why? DC Voting Rights. The two gentlemen are as of yet undecided how to vote on the DC Franchise. Perhaps you might give them a ring with your opinion? Stealing straight from DCist, here are the contact points:
Webb can be reached at (202) 224-4024 and Specter at (202) 224-4254. If you’re more the writing kind, email Specter’s Chief of Staff Scott Hoeflich at scott_hoeflich (at) specter (dot) senate (dot) gov or Webb’s Chief of Staff Paul J. Reagan at paul_reagan (at) webb (dot) senate (dot) gov.
Email’s fine too, but I’m down with the phone call.
