Elected officials want to hear from you - Let your voice be heard!

Elected officials need to know what their constituent's needs are and what issues are most important to the community members they serve. Writing a letter to is an extremely effective way of letting your elected officials know what is important to you and your community.

We've launched MyNWI Voice to help you connect with your elected officials - Follow our simple steps to get started writing your letter!

how it works

Simply fill out the form below and RiseNWI will deliver your submitted letter to the proper elected official.

The purpose of this writing project is to provide you with an easy platform to let your elected officials know what you care about. Please be respectful throughout your letter; RiseNWI has the right to omit any letters from delivery due to vulgar or inappropriate content.

who am i writing to?

If you are writing about a topic very specific to your community, such as road repair, community programming, or local safety, we recommend addressing your letter to your local government.

If your topic is of larger scale, such as healthcare, gun control, or education, we suggest addressing your letter to your state representative. 

If you are unsure who your letter should go to, that's okay! We will make sure the proper office receives it based on the topic of your letter.

Tips on writing an effective letter to your elected official:

  • Be personal - it has more impact

  • Identify yourself.

  • Be specific. Write about current issues and communicate how this issue impacts you and your family.

  • Ask for a reply. 

  • State your relationship to the elected official. Did you vote for this person? Have you ever contributed time or money to his or her campaign?
