    Has anyone here ever actually written a letter to someone in high office?

    I'm talking at the level of a state Governor, equivalent or higher.  Did you get a response, other than some form letter sent by an aide of an aide of an assistant?  Did you find it helpful?

    I've written to a US Senator before. I did get a response back but it was a generic "Thank you for your concerns" type of letter.

    YES. I write very personal and detailed letters and sometimes get a personal response, mostly from Senators....Barbara Boxer responded with a personal response recently. And I was thankful for her thoughts.

    Senator Ron Wyden....used to run into him in the super market when he was home back in Portland, Oregon. He's the most humble and open and straight forward politician I've met.

    I wrote to President Obama once.  He claimed he wanted feedback about healthcare reform and I was more than happy to give him just that.  It was not a nasty email... just an honest one with advice.

    And no, he never responded, nor was my advice taken into consideration.  An aide emailed me a standard, "Thanks for your email" response.   Oh well.  At least I tried.
