I worked for Congress for 6 years, and here's what I learned about how they listen to constituents.

First, tweeting or writing on Facebook is largely ineffective. I never looked at those comments except to remove the harassing ones.

Second, writing a letter to the district office (state) is better than sending an email or writing a letter to DC.

I did personal casework as a congressional staffer. So, your best bet is to call the office and ask to speak to staff.

if they talk and you need to talk to the rep, they will arrange that meeting for you.

What about calling reps that aren't your own district? How many do you think were "outsiders" in those surge times?

Thanks. Nice to know nothing's really changed in 16 years. All politics is local. And retail. Glad to hear that's still true.

thanks for sharing. I knew calling was better. Didn't know state office was better than D.C.

they typically get fewer calls. Plus, they are more likely to be from that district and know people.
