Nearly one week after the election, some are still celebrating while others are still sulking over the results. It does not have to be that way.
Residents do not need to wait until election day to let their thoughts be known to their local representatives. They have the opportunity every day.
Locally, residents feel a connection with a mayor or supervisor or even a trustee, but voicing an opinion on a federal level can be just as easy. Our current representatives all have offices within the region to listen and assist.
Here is how to reach out to them to voice opinions about what is right - or wrong - in America.
