You voted them in, now talk to your elected representatives

The midterm election was a victory for democracy. Many people came out to vote and express their choices. Many more than typical (“Massive voter turnout marks end of volatile election year,” The Herald, Nov. 5).

But now is not the time to stop. Our elected representatives still need to know what we want from them on the issues.

I happen to think that it is a good idea to support our environment and access to good, affordable health care. That’s me.

Our representatives need to know what you think.
