Contact Your Representatives

Let your city, county, state, or federal representatives know how you feel about an issue – there’s no way they can abide by your wishes if you don’t contact them. You may think, “Gee, I’m only one of 300 million, what difference can I make?” As it turns out: A LOT. Because not very people do take the time and effort to contact their leaders, when you do, your voice effectively counts for the thousands of people who don’t exercise their democratic option of making themselves heard.

It’s your right to express yourself and to state your opinion, and millions of people have died fighting for that right. Use it.

When you do contact your representatives, whether it be by email, telephone, or written missive, always be cordial and be respectful. Be constructive and work with your representative. You are much more likely to be heard if you’ll work with your representative rather than criticizing her or him.


Encinitas Council 

http://encinitasca.gov

City Council typically meets the second, third, and fourth Wednesday of each month for regular Council meetings beginning at 6:00 p.m. Special meetings are also held on an “as needed” basis in order to address special issues or conduct special public workshops.

Council meeting can be watched on the Internet live and in real time through the link above. The video of Council meetings is also archived and can be watched later via the same link.

Speaking directly to Council is effective. To speak about an Agenda Item, use a pink speaker slip; for a non-Agenda Item, use a white slip. You have three minutes and you can have up to two time donations from people in the audience (they must be present when you speak).

You can also send email to Council.
