Poe says writing him in Washington doesn’t work

CROSBY – Ted Poe opened his address to this community with a joke about how he distinguishes the 2nd Congressional District to Washington D.C. insiders in favor of gun control, “I tell them of the bumper sticker I saw that read, ‘Is there life after death? Touch this truck and find out.’ ”
U.S. Congressman Poe, R., addressed the Crosby/Huffman Chamber of Commerce on Oct. 25 at Crosby Church on U.S. 90 prior to his steamroller victory on Tuesday.
Along with hearing about spending and border security again, Poe surprised many listeners by informing them that it is best not to e-mail or send letters to his office in Washington D.C. He explained how many Internet savvy politicos barrage congressmen with e-mails as if they were multitudes of citizens instead of just one. Letters have to go through screening for chemical and germ attacks and can take up to a month to process.


So, the business of constituents must be handled on a more local level.
