Sample Postcard Messages

Dear __________,

I am a __________________. I am furious that the current legislation is aimed at taking away my voice as a taxpayer, as a voter, as a school employee and as a member of the middle class. It’s time politicians, regardless of their party, listen to us and renew the balance in our economy. Your promise was to create jobs. Your partisan politics will not create a single job. Stop the attacks on Michigan’s middle class.

 

Dear __________,

I am a __________________ who is angry over the constant attacks on school employees. We are dedicated to making sure the children of this state receive a quality education that will prepare them for a successful future. You seem dedicated to making sure that doesn’t happen. From slashing the education budget to diminishing collective bargaining, your partisan politics are destroying education and the middle class—two key elements in saving Michigan. Stop the attacks.

 

Dear __________,

I am a __________________.  The message of “shared sacrifice” is hard to believe when all of your efforts are aimed at making sure big business survives and the middle class—people like me—suffer. Your efforts at cutting the wages and benefits of the middle class, taxing seniors and the poor, and slashing education funding will destroy this state. None of these moves will create the jobs your promised. Stop the attacks.
