MASMS Legislative Outreach Week | Making it Personal Matters
An Important Part of the Legislative Process is Constituent Advocacy!
February 28, 2022 through March 4, 2022


Personal communication from a constituent to a legislator is the best way to inform your legislative members and influence their decisions.
During the week of February 28 to March 4, 2022 MASMS members are being asked to make a good effort to contact their legislators and inform them of the MASMS legislative 2022 platform.

Let’s make this an impactful week!
Please review the talking points and platform information:

Here is a template email message you may use (feel free to personalize):

Dear Senator/Representative Name,

I’m _________ with the ________ school district. I’m writing today to reach out to you about the work I (and my team/my crew) do to take care of our school facilities.

While most of this work happens locally, your work at the state capitol impacts our ability to get the job done. I attached the legislative platform for the Minnesota Educational Facilities Management Professionals Association (also known as MASMS). MASMS is a group of over 700 individuals working in the area of facilities, grounds, health and safety operations for Minnesota K-12 and higher education.

I know your time is very limited this session, but I would greatly appreciate a 15 minute virtual meeting to talk about our local school facilities and the potential for legislation that could help our work.

I greatly appreciate you considering my request.

Sincerely, __________________
