Email Ideas

Here are some ideas for personalizing your letter:
  1. Introduce yourself (who you are, what you do, how long you’ve lived in your riding etc.)
  2. Through their research, End Poverty Edmonton has identified six areas where Alberta needs to im-prove in order to address poverty. Choose one or more of these areas that resonate with you and tell your candidate why you believe it’s important.
    • Livable incomes
    • Affordable housing
    • Access to mental health services
    • Affordable, accessible transit
    • Eliminating racism
    • Affordable and quality childcare

    Feel free to build on these ideas or add some of your own.
     
  3. If you have ideas about how the provincial government could help tackle these issues, share those ideas with your candidates.
