• Local Government: Know when meetings happen and what issues are before them. Read agendas and minutes. Be informed and show up to demonstrate you care. Utilize opportunities to address the officials.
  • Town:  Each town has a town supervisor, council, justice, assessor, town clerk, highway supervisor, code enforcement officer, zoning board of appeals, and dog warden. The names of these people and contact information can be found on either the town’s website or with a call to the town clerk’s office.
  • Village:   Elected officials such as the mayor and trustees are listed on the village website as are various departments.
  • County: Click here to find your St. Lawrence County Legislator and how to contact this person: https://www.stlawco.org/Departments/BoardofLegislators/
  • State Government:   At the state level, you may wish to contact the governor, your assembly member, or state senator.
  • Federal Government: At the federal level, you may wish to contact the President, your U.S. Senators, or your Congressional Representative.
    • Calling the White House and leaving a message is most effective. The person you speak with is most likely a volunteer. This is why the phone line may not be in operation during holidays, for example. (Closed between Christmas and New Year’s Day, for example.) Time wise, it took this writer about 20 minutes to get through and leave a message in a recent call.
    • Phone calls are most effective to Senators, followed by hardcopy letters.
      • Contact information for Minority Leader Senator Chuck Schumer (D): https://www.schumer.senate.gov/contact/office-locations
      • (Since Schumer is the minority leader, his office is especially powerful to reach. This also makes for somewhat longer waits to speak with someone, comparable to calling the White House.)
      • Contact information for Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D) is found by scrolling down to the bottom of this webpage: https://www.gillibrand.senate.gov/
      • (This writer found a call to Gillibrand’s office took little time.)
    • Phone calls are most effective to Congressional Representatives, followed by hardcopy letters.
      • St. Lawrence County is part of the rather expansive 21st Congressional District. Your Representative is Congresswoman Elise Stefanik. Contact information is found below. Phone numbers and addresses are below the e-mail form:
