I wrote a letter to 50 North Carolina Senators expressing my opinion against HJR 235. This is the only response that I received:
Sen. Mary Wills Bode <firstname.lastname@example.org>

David, thanks for your note. I appreciate you reaching out about HJR 235.
I was surprised that I did not receive more replies, even if it was an autoreply. I was surprised that the only one who did reply was a Democrat. I do want to thank Sen. Bode for her reply. I wish she would have told me her position on HJR 235. I was surprised that senators that I know and in one case even worked with prior to her election did not respond.
Lessons learned? None. I already knew that voting is not a solution. This effort cost me nothing more than 10 minutes of my time and I received information and confirmation that will be useful in the future.
