A Government That’s Actually FOR the People?

Several months ago, I emailed my Congresswoman—Carol Shea-Porter—detailing my concerns about the environment and the government’s general lack of effort. And, to my great surprise, Congresswoman Shea-Porter responded.

Today I received an email survey from the Congresswoman to find out what I think the government should do to address the energy crisis. She writes in the email, “It is absolutely critical that we reduce our dependence on foreign oil. This is not only an economic and an environmental issue, but a vital national security concern. I will continue to work hard in Congress to make progress toward energy independence.”


I filled out the survey and hope my answers will have some influence. In the meantime, I encourage you to contact your Senators and Congresspeople to make your concerns known. After all, the only way your voice will be heard is if you speak up.

Question of the blog: Will the environment influence how you vote this fall?
