Sample Email to a Legislator
Dear Senator ________:
I am a resident of _____________ and I am writing to express my support for SB 998, which includes elements of the Fair Share Planning and Zoning proposal originally embodied by HB 6633. The Fair Share elements remaining as part of SB 998 include a state assessment of the need for affordable housing and a fair allocation of the need to municipalities to inform their planning and zoning goals.
I care about this because of my own personal background/experience as [a teacher, a business leader, a parent, a volunteer, a senior]. [Consider adding your brief personal story here.]
I hope you will support SB 998.
If passed, this proposal will put us on the road to greater housing affordability and expanded geographic choices in housing. Fair Share is the right thing and the smart thing to do for Connecticut.
