  •  You'd call if you didn't live in the (15+ / 0-)

    state capitol or the city where your legislator resides so you could air your concerns to your elected employee, just as a concerned citizen supervisor should do. If the legislator gets all bent out of shape, it's probably because he knows his PNP is going to suffer.

    I don't see why a secretary would be concerned about that.

    But then, I live in Oklahoma, where I can arrange to visit any of my legislators whenever I want to, and can even drop in on them at the capitol.  It helps that I live half an hour away from the capitol, and not too far away from my legislators' offices.

    I will admit that emails and letters get short shrift, but in person visits have never been an issue.
