We need to keep this story as a top of mind issue for the public — it is still surprising how many people in our region are still uninformed about this project. An effective way of doing this is by sending letters to the editor. Remember, your representatives at the local, state, and federal levels keep up with the editorial pages of major newspapers. A variety of talking points you may want to consider as the focus of your letter are provided on the Talking Points for Letters page.
Send us your letters on public issues. You must include your name, address and, for verification only, a phone number where you can be reached during the day. Your letter should be 200 words or fewer. If accepted for publication, it will be printed in the printed Roanoke Times, if space is available. We welcome letters on public issues. When citing an article in The Roanoke Times, please give its headline and date. All letters are edited. Because of the volume we receive, we regret we can publish only a portion of them, and cannot always acknowledge receipt. Source: http://ww2.roanoke.com/editorials/
