Re:

CONTACT YOUR CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATES TO URGE THEM TO COMPLETE AHI’S CANDIDATE QUESTIONNAIRE

BACKGROUND

The 2010 mid-term elections will be held Tuesday, November 2, 2010.  On November 2, all 435 seats in the House of Representatives and 37 seats in the Senate are up for election.

This weekend, members will adjourn to hit the campaign trail for the next month in their congressional districts and throughout their states.

The American Hellenic Institute has issued its 2010 Congressional Candidate Questionnaire Form to candidates seeking election to the U.S. Congress (both Senate and House of Representatives).

The questionnaire explores issues that are of great importance to the Greek American community that involve U.S. relations with Greece and Cyprus, as well as Southeastern Europe and Eastern Mediterranean region.

AHI will facilitate the distribution of candidates’ responses and positions to the Greek American community.

AHI has asked candidates to return the questionnaire by Monday, October 18, 2010.

STATUS

The questionnaire has been mailed to the campaign offices of the candidates from the two major parties (and select independent candidates) who are running for congress.

ACTION

Contact the campaign offices of your congressional candidates and urge them to complete AHI’s Congressional Questionnaire Form.

  1. Congressional campaign offices will be receiving AHI’s questionnaire this week.
  2. Call or visit their offices and ask if they have received the questionnaire.
  3. Advise them that as a voter, you would appreciate the candidate completing the form so that his/her positions on Greek American issues are presented to the community.
  4. Remind them of the deadline of October 18, 2010.

If a candidate’s office cannot locate or place AHI’s questionnaire, then offer to get a copy of the questionnaire in their hands either via fax, email, or hand delivery.

HOW CAN I FIND THEIR CONTACT INFORMATION?
