For years, as Legislative Counsel to the National Capital Lyme Disease Association, I have been contacted by individuals and organizations around the country, to assist in legislative pursuits. I have drafted legislation, educated and spread awareness to State and Federal Representatives, as well as advocates, testified and supported others. Today, I am pleased to introduce to you a tool that has assisted us in all of our campaigns.
This site allows you to contact your State and Federal Representatives by simply filling out your name and address. It's easy! Simply select from the issue(s) on which you wish to comment, click on the link and the letter will appear. After carefully reading it, if you feel that it accurately represents your position, fill out your name and address and when you hit send, the e-mail will be forwarded to all of your State and Federal Representatives. There is a dialogue box in each letter for you to add your own personal story, should you choose to do so.
Advocacy groups can draft a message with their specific bill's title and number to appear in the dialogue box. It is the intention of this site to gift to you, the ability to use your voice with impact. Please treat it with respect as we value our relationships with all our Representatives.

I wish to thank Monte Skall and the Board of Directors of the National Capital Lyme Disease Organization, for their generosity in funding this project for the Lyme community.
It has been my privilege to serve NatCapLyme as Legislative Counsel and an honor to serve alongside these dedicated individuals. This vision could not have become a reality without their generous support.
