    Shouldn't it be sent to both? I always feel like I should communicate my opinion directly to my rep regardless of whether I think it will have an impact or be directly responded to, just for the record. I want to be in the stack, in the tally, to be officially if perfunctorily heard from. Just do it. It's part of being an active citizen, a participant in my democracy. It's the vitamin-taking part of being a citizen. I used to call and/or write the White House, and have actually gotten "responses" before, if you can call it that.
