A message from the editor: Contact your legislators

Published: Thursday, Jan. 3, 2013 11:30 a.m. CDT

The American “federal” form of government (not to be confused with “the federal government”) requires feedback from its citizens at every level to operate most effectively.

The right to speak out for or against our government is as old as the institution itself. So don’t be silent. Believe it or not, that’s what lobbying is.

Below are the names and contact information for our elected officials in Washington, D.C., and Des Moines. It is our hope you will use them to help ensure “Government of the People, by the People, for the People.”
