Letter to AL 6th Cong'l district candidates

[12/15/13 Correction:  I did not previously see the below "candidate directory legend" on the website I was using for my information:
Bold = Active Candidate

Italics = Potential Candidate
* = Incumbent
(Incumbent Party Listed First)
= Election Winner

Only Brooke, DeMarco, Langan, Mathis, and Palmer seem to appear in boldface.]

[I am endeavoring to send the following letter to the persons (listed here) who have announced they are running for Congress in the Alabama 6th Congressional district.  As I get email addresses, I will post the addresses in this entry.  I will post responses I receive in either this blog entry or a separate entry.]

Re:  Extremely low Congressional approval

Dear _________________,

I believe you are an announced candidate for Congress in the Alabama 6th Congressional district.  I am a voter in that district. 

I wish to ask you what you have to say about the abysmally low and perhaps record low Congressional approval ratings that are being reported (below 10% approval).

1. Why do you think there is such a low approval rating?

2. Does the low approval rating signify the existence of a significant problem that Congress should investigate for the benefit of the American people, report to the American people about, and, if Congress concludes there is a significant problem, propose to the American people what should be done to try to fix the problem?

3. What priority should Congress give to the foregoing possible problem?

If you provide me a response to these questions, I will post the same in my Alabama political blog Be An Alabama Rootstriker.

Thank you.
