Contacting election candidates

You’re in the queue for coffee after church and the conversation turns to the election. Your friend says they are disappointed as they won’t be able to get to the hustings – but they really wanted to raise an issue with the candidates.

What do you say?

  1. I could ask it for you…
  2. You can still contact them about it – there’s a great website where you can find contact details of the candidates.  Why not email them personally about it?

This time - both answers are excellent - but why not do both? 

It's also a great way to start a relationship with whoever will be elected....
