I think you missed my point.
The letters have been written.The elected officials have turned a deaf ear. There isn't a letter that you could write that wouldn't hit a desk that has a stack of the same letter on it.
An event is planned to take place in the town that will bear the brunt of the economic impact from the closure. Here is a chance to show the business owners,taxpayers and VOTERS of this town what an impact we play in their local economy. Are you going to write each and every one of them a letter?
Are you going to wish your letter into the local paper and hope that it gets front page coverage? Do YOU read the paper? Really? do you read each and every editorial on the back page? Thats where your letter will be,if your lucky.
Here is a chance to go to town ,engage the locals in conversation and bring awareness to the issue. This is a perfect chance to say "We support you,please support us".
I wholeheartedly disagree that writing another letter will do more for our cause than one on one,face to face interaction.
