Contact Your Legislators
What is a letter writing campaign?
The most direct way of impacting a legislator is through a letter writing campaign. The more letters a legislator receives, the more important the issue becomes. The letters may be directed toward any elected official or a particular government agency.
In order to assist the residents of Pompano Beach in writing effective letters, four sample letters have been prepared that can be sent to state legislators. They are available below. Only the information highlighted in blue needs to be completed by the resident.
Two of the letters are concerning legislation currently being considered by the Florida Legislature (House Bill 6003 and Senate Bill 788). Below are hyperlinks to the proposed bills.
- House Bill 6003
- Senate Bill 788
- Since many residents have expressed concerns regarding Sober Homes, a sample letter requesting the Florida Legislature address Sober Homes has been prepared.
- Finally, the fourth letter is a generic letter which you can edit to address any issue, legislation, agency, or concern you might have.
Sample Letter regarding House Bill 6003 – Vacation Rentals
Sample Letter regarding Senate Bill 788 – Recovery Residences
Sample Letter supporting legislation that regulates Sober Homes
Sample Letter supporting any topic

Email your Legislator
Another very effective and immediate form of communicating with State Legislators is via email. The Florida League of Cities has an informative and helpful webpage for emailing legislators. Directly from their page you can email not only your district legislators, but you can also email committee members.
