Our legislators are part-time elected officials, often with full time jobs on the side as lawyers, teachers, doctors, developers and so on. Taking time out of their busy lives and careers to serve public office is a huge undertaking. Whether you largely agree with your legislator or not, they deserve thanks for their hard work and long hours in public service this legislative session and beyond.
So c’mon, during this season of thanks, let’s all give thanks to our state legislators for their hard work, for a stance they’ve taken or issue they’ve championed, or simply for their public service.
Thanking your legislators can help you build a good relationship for the future when you may need to ask them to vote a certain way or to take in important information or personal stories that could help shape policy decisions.
Saying thanks is important. Take a moment to thank your state senator and representative today!
