Start Weightlifting, These Letters are Heavy
When Representative Dingell posted his letter to Acting Chair Nancy Nord and Commissioner Thomas Moore, there was a collective sigh of relief that someone not only asked such pointed questions, but also asked for a response. Yes, bills had been submitted to both the House and the Senate, but they were languishing and we needed to maintain our momentum in order to keep this issue top of mind in Congress.
And where many of us viewed these letters as correspondences only between these three individuals and not intended for interaction, Rick Woldenberg saw it as our opportunity.
What was a simple post and a simple request – respond to Dingell’s letter with your own answers to his questions – became an outpouring of letters that would require hundreds of pages of paper in order to hand-deliver them to Representative Dingell.
Many of these letters are included on this site, but they could not be reproduced in their entirety because of their sheer volume.
