Contact Your Legislators!

Many of us have lost faith in our government.  ”They don’t care”, “they’re in it for themselves”, “big business owns them”, etc.

While some of that may be true, I believe a significant number of them really do care about their constituents, their state and their country.

But there’s a disconnect between our elected officials and their constituents.  And I believe that disconnect, unfortunately, is the fault of many of those they represent.

For some reason, most of us believe we can send them off to do the people’s business without any further input from us. We trust them to do the right thing.

What we don’t understand is that once they become part of the ‘mix’ in Tallahassee, it becomes much more difficult for them to get done what you sent them there to do.

Let me get to my point. Legislation is being drafted that will be introduced this coming session of congress. Your district Senators and Representatives need to be aware of your concerns about Aqua Utilities Florida, the Florida Public Service Commission, and the state statutes that need to be amended.

Every Senator and Representative should be able to say to his/her peers in Congress, that they receive more complaints about Aqua Utilities Florida than anything else!

You have to get the attention of every Legislator that has an AUF system in their district.

Email them, write them, call their district office, meet with them, give them petitions.

Why is this so important?  A Senator or Representative can introduce a bill, but without the support of the majority of the others, that bill will fail miserably.

You have to get the attention of as many Congress people as possible, if you expect some changes to take place.

There’s more to being a good citizen than just voting.  Please contact them now.
