1) I’m sure our Senators and Congresspersons want to do a good job for us .... but in order to make that easier for them, we need to keep watching those suckers night and day. Stalk ‘em! Fortunately Google Alerts makes this easy for us. Go to https://www.google.com/alerts and put in the names of whoever and whatever you want to keep track of. For example:
You may receive a lot of responses, so you might want to create a separate mailbox for these. Or perhaps just pick one representative you especially want to follow.
2) Be aware that you can keep tabs on your representatives’ voting records and positions by visiting http://votesmart.org/. Bookmark this site for easy reference, or you’ll find a link on the Resources page of The Ten-Minute Activist website.
3) Last but not least, sign up for your own representatives’ updates and news so that your stalking may be more complete. Again, if you don’t want to be overwhelmed, just pick one rep to follow.
That’s it. Tomorrow we write!
