The ability of West Denver Trout Unlimited members to rapidly respond to critical issues concerning fisheries conservation depends upon rapid communication. Hard copy and electronic newsletters can provide critical information, but cannot provide members with immediate information concerning legislative action, meeting dates, or other time-sensitive data vital to an informed and timely response.
The WDTU board has approved the establishment of a “rapid response” email list of WDTU members, designated for the express purpose of providing information to those who may wish to proactively respond to important issues that affect our fisheries. Those who wish to be listed will then be notified by email when an important event is eminent, or when calls and letters to their representatives are needed.
If you would like to help fisheries conservation by being a member of WDTU’s ‘rapid response” email list, please send your message to Dan Sullivan at the following email address: WDTU@msn.com.
The most important thing is to join! Come help us, in whatever way you might, to do this important work.
Find your State and US Senators/Representative + their contact information: www.vote-smart.org
From that site, you can find out who your legislators are. You will need to enter your zip plus four to call up your district information; if you do not know that number, the website includes a link to the US Post Office website where you can look up your plus four using your address. Both features appear in the upper left hand portion of the vote-smart web page.
These sources will list all of the US senators and Congressmen for a given state:
