Re: “Legislators aren’t listening to us” (letter, 6-11).

Unlike the writer, I have had quite a few contacts with Sen. Patty Murray over the years, and she has always been very responsive to my comments and inquiries. I admit that I did not use email in these contacts, but wrote letters to her using her Seattle address (The Honorable Patty Murray, 2988 Jackson Federal Building, 915 Second Ave., Seattle, WA 98174).

I believe that all of our legislators’ addresses and other contact information may be found on the Access Washington website.

Like the writer, I am a retiree (military veteran), and just so no one thinks I am biased in favor of Murray, I am, as the current trend goes, one who “prefers the Republican Party.” Also, though it hardly matters, I have never received a reply from Sen. Maria Cantwell on any subject I have referred to her.
