I’m always interested in politics and seeing how Congressmen vote/feel about bills and resolutions as they come up. It really gives the people a look at whose interest they have at heart, the people’s or special interests’.
Dalton has an office for Congressman Tom Graves (702 South Thornton Avenue), the Representative for the 9th District of Georgia. Even before having a local office, I made calls voicing my opinions on upcoming matters, matters that always matter like the wars, federal reserve, taxes, etc., but driving by the office at least 4 times a day really gives you a greater sense of connectedness to the people. Even though it’s just a satellite office for him, seeing it at least gives me that sense. I really hope it has the same effect on others, and it’s really a shame that people do feel a huge disconnect between ourselves and Washington that they don’t even feel it worth voicing their opinion to their representatives. But we should. After all, that is their job-listening to us.
I call the local office pretty often, especially if I receive an alert that something is coming up to vote. It would be very interesting to know how many calls the local office receives, and what the increase of calls to him were from Dalton’s zip codes after placing a local office here.
