bad news: If you think writing letters to the Giuliani
administrations is pretty much a waste of time, you're right. Don't waste
your time, your energy, your paper and your stamps. You're more likely
to get a response if you write to Santa Claus.
good news: There are other people to write to besides
the Giuliani administration. And occasionally well crafted letters receive
encourage you to write. If you're inspired by this site and want to do
something right now. Then just print out one of our pre-written letters
(feel free to change the tone so that it is your voice that is talking)
and send it off. Or if you want our help writing or editing a letter just
send us an email via [email protected]
these examples of letters while we complete this section. thanks.)
1. Re Moving Billboards
(name advertiser, company owner, or ceo),
I am convinced that your advertisement on the side of a vehicle billboard
had the opposite of its intended effect. It has made me less interested
in your (company name/product or brand here). Our streets are already
congested and dangerous. Our air is already polluted. And this media vehicle
just adds to congestion, pollution, and endangerment on our streets. New
York City is just the wrong place for these vehicles and as a marketer
trying to reach New Yorkers you should know this. I guess now you do.
I strongly encourage you to spend your media dollars another way as I'm
sure I'm not the only person who thinks this.
Re Dangerous Driving/ Commercial
(company owner, or ceo),
my way (back or to) (place you where going) (insert time and date) I witnessed
a driver of your company (insert location and description of what you
saw) I wasn't hurt but I could have been. Even if your driver is in a
rush that is no excuse for almost hitting a pedestrian. Besides killing
potential customers is just bad business. It would be nice to know that
this letter received the serious attention that it deserves and that a
corrective course of action has been taken by your company.
