Ok folks, we are getting down to the wire here. There is just one week to
go and appointments have been made with only 14 out of 30 Senators and only
11 out of 60 Representative.
If you are nervous about going to talk with your legislators that is natural
but most of the legislators and their staff usually make it pretty easy.
They are very use to talking with groups visiting them. The hardest part
might actually be getting to the topics you want to address. They will
usually only have 10 to 15 minutes to talk with you. The offices hold up to
3 visitors so if you take one or two people with you it makes it even easier
to have the conversation.
We have some subjects for you to address,
Nan Heim will be meeting with people at 9:00 a.m. to discuss the issues in
Room 101 at the State Library.
There will be people in the Galleria at the Capital building, with the book
display, who have a lot of experience and are very willing to talk with you
about how to meet with your legislators and about the issues
If you can't meet with your legislators then try to meet with their staff.
If you can't attend at all but want to be a part of OLA Legislative day then
commit to calling or sending an email to your legislators on Monday,
February 7. We would like to know if you are doing this so you can add that
informaton on the schedule on the wiki as well.
If you have problems posting your appointments to the wiki,

me the information, diedre08 at gmail.com and I am very happy to add it for
*Come have a fun day in Salem.
