Good morning (afternoon). My name is (your name), and I am calling to ask (representative’s name) to support the resolution designating March 25-29 as Public Schools Week. The resolution is sponsored by Mr. Pocan, Ms. Bonamici, Mr. Graves and Mr. Thompson. Do you know if (representative’s name) will be signing on? (If they say, no, ask) May I speak with someone who might know. I think all of the public school parents in (representative’s) district, would love to hear that he/she supports Public Schools Week. I will check back with you next week to find out if he/she has signed on to the resolution. Thank you so much for your time.
