Guide to Building an Effective Comment Letter

While it can be difficult to craft a letter to county officials, it’s important for each person who wishes to comment to do so individually and not by using a form letter that simply repeats the same words over and over.  Form letters that flood county offices can dilute the power of multiple, individual messages.  County officials stop paying attention when all the letters are the same.

The more people use the Options for Oakton header, the more the county will see that our community is organized and paying attention.
