This last week was pretty normal. There was lots of mail to send to constituents. Also, there were lots of meetings in the office. The reason it was so busy is Congressman Perlmutter introduced an amendment to reduce the spread of wildfires. Also, on Friday, I gave a tour at the very end of the day. It was a nice break from the piles of letters.

The past week dealt with lots of calls and letters. The amount of postcards will be dwindling as the Freedom of Choice Act postcards will no longer be getting a reply from our office. Many people have continued to email about subjects which concern them and those are gladly accepted. Last week many phone calls we received were quite rude/obnoxious. We are more than happy to take calls concerning issues that are important to you, however please stay civilized and courteous. Otherwise the past week was pretty similar to the rest of them.

Over spring break I worked one day. It was however a busy but interesting day. The archives was archiving a presentation by some students in the Congressman's district and he gave a little presentation that I went to see. Also, I went to a hearing on cyberterrorism. It was very informative and interesting to hear. Besides that, I attached letters to constituent mail. All in all it was an interesting day.

So this past week was pretty much a lot of the same. However, the Freedom of Choice postcards are starting to dwindle down! Congressman Perlmutter submitted new legislation on Friday to establish new federal oversight in the financial industry. Also, the office had lots of meetings for various pieces of legislation. Otherwise it was a pretty normal week on the hill.

This week at the capitol I got a little break from normal office duties. I gave a tour of the capitol to a couple constituents. It was a good way to break up the day for a bit. However, I did get a little bit lost on my way to the Old Supreme Court Chamber, but only for a second or two! Other than that, I did more of the same. There were phone calls - many from reporters asking for our press secretary. I also attached letters to constituent mail.
