If the calls and letters to the FDA won't do anything, and calls and letters to the media won't do anything...
lets put all our support behind the people who ARE starting to do something. Time for more calls and letters to Congress and the Senate.
From Gina at petconnection.com/blog this morning:
I’m trying to get confirmation from C-SPAN, CNN and Fox that at least one of them will air Sen. Durbin’s media conference 1:30 p.m. CT today in Springfield. Here’s contact information if you want to urge full coverage:
- C-SPAN: firstname.lastname@example.org
- CNN: http://www.cnn.com/feedback/dotcom/
- Fox: http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,77538,00.html
And speaking of political action (which we have been, click here), reader Mike reminders everyone that:
[…} every Rep will be up for re-election in ‘08, and one-third of the Senators. What’s going into my letters will be some statement to the effect that “I will be supporting a candidate on election day Nov 4 who is working to further this legislation…..”
From Steve posting over on petconnection.com last week:
Sen. Richard Durbin (D-Ill.) and Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.) sent a letter to the commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration March 23 asking for full details of the investigation into the pet food contamination.Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) sent a letter to the president and CEO of Menu Foods Income Fund March 23 asking for detailed information explaining the contamination and subsequent recall of Menu Food’s pet food products.
