RE: Survey Finds Loads of Baggage Accompanies Congress on the Campaign Trail

Dear Member of Congress,

During this election year Our Generation mailed more than 1.6 million questionnaires to voters and have received responses from across the nation, including your district. I thought you would want to bear in mind the following survey results as you hit the campaign trail this fall:

·    97.9% opposed the 2009 congressional pay raise

·    96% favor term limits for Congress

·    86.3% have little or no confidence in Congress’ ability to handle the problems facing the country today

Our Generation is a nonpartisan, nonprofit grassroots watchdog group dedicated to ensuring a more responsible government and enhancing the lives of our citizens through awareness, advocacy and action.

I hope you find the above information useful and take into careful consideration the viewpoints expressed when seeking the support of your constituents for election to office this November in the capacity of their public servant.

Very Truly Yours,

Rita J. Smith
Executive Director
