(Mods, If this should be posted elsewhere, please move it.) Upon hearing that Rep Mitch Greenlick was deleting "pro-gun" emails without reading them and confirming he had turned off his phone due to too many calls, I was determined to make contact in a manner where I could be assured he would read my email. Here is what I sent this evening followed by his reply: Healthcare Background and HB3200. Thank you! Dr. Greenlick, Thank you for the commitment you have made over a lifetime to the healthcare community in Oregon. Clearly you are a well educated and highly intelligent individual, and your former service to the medical community is noted. I took the time in reading your background after first reading about HB3200 and wanting to get a bit more background into why you would propose such a fantastic bill. Your insertion of HB3200 has done more to not just raise awareness, but ACTION on the attack of the second amendment (not to mention outright violations of other amendments in your bill) and I applaud your very crafty methods in community organizing in this matter. I have never seen my fellow law abiding, gun owning, and democratic friends so fired up and I cannot thank you enough for that! You have done more to help ensure the defense, financial donations, and community organizing to help ensure our constitutional right to bear arms, than anything OFF, or the NRA has done. Well done sir, well done! Thanks again! His prompt response: It's nice to feel useful. Mitch While he has disconnected his phone (A Representative who doesn't really want to hear what you have to say? Really?) He is apparently reading this email address: Mitchgreenlick@msn.com While you are contacting the real folks who matter, a little "howdy" to this email might just result in it too, being too much for him to hear, and shutting it down as well. I've sent numerous personal emails in the last year to Senators, and in almost all cases I've received a personal one back. If you can't send anything else, a form email works, but a personal one will be read in my experience. Fire away!
