Can't Get to the Grocery Store - No Problem! "Ask Ed" Launches Today

Perlmutter Answers Constituent Questions by Video

Today, 7th Congressional District Representative, Ed Perlmutter, launched a new "Ask Ed" feature to his website as another way to answer constituent questions and find out what's on the minds of the hardworking people in the 7th CD.

"Whether I'm at the gym, grocery store or the dog park, people come up to me to ask questions or talk about the issues important to them. Sometimes I get similar questions from a bunch of different people. This is another way I can be responsive to the hardworking people in the 7th CD and share information they need to know," said Perlmutter.

Each month, Ed receives hundreds of letters, phone calls and emails - many of them with similar questions. With "Ask Ed," Constituents can send a question to Ed, and every month he will record a video answer to one of the questions, The video response will be emailed back to the constituent and posted on his Congressional Website, Facebook, and Twitter accounts. All constituents who email through the "Ask Ed" page on the website will receive a response. Constituents can also continue calling, emailing and sending letters to the Congressional office.
