Why it Can Be Hard to Reach Senator Schumer on Your Own
- Reaching any government representative can be tricky. Senators, in particular, spend a significant amount of time traveling between Washington DC and their state, meaning that if you live in one of New York’s smaller towns it can be hard to know when they’ll finally have time to address your concerns.
- Calling your Senator can actually be a very ineffective method of communication. This is because they hardly ever reach the senator directly. Phone lines are often busy and if you can get hold of Senator Schumer’s staff you never know how well they’ll relate to your message or how helpful they’ll be in dealing with your particular case.
- Your best chance at contacting Senator Schumer is definitely through a formally written email. Keep in mind that email must be professional, well-articulated, and must directly address whatever action you wish the senator to take. Writing such an email can definitely be intimidating, and depending on the severity of the bill or issue that you want to bring to the senator’s attention, it can be extremely important how well you manage to communicate your thoughts.
