WHAT YOU CAN SAY

“Hi, I’m a constituent of Governor Abbott’s from {city/town} and my zip code is {_______}. I’m calling today to applaud his recent actions on requiring masks around the state, and respectfully encourage him to take more action to slow the spread of COVID-19 in our state.

“Stop the virus now by issuing a mandatory stay at home order. That is the only way we’ll get past this spike in cases.”
