“Hi Senator (insert name), my name’s (insert your name) and I live in your state. As Congress discusses options for helping the economy during this public health crisis, please don’t forget the roofing industry which contains many small businesses like mine. I’m a local shop with XX employees and I read a lot about bailouts for billion dollar companies. We’re getting hit real hard due to this crisis ,and I have concerns about how Congress is handling this situation (add any additional information or anecdotes on hardships being experienced). Please don’t forget about small businesses as you work on solutions to these rapidly spiraling economic impacts of the coronavirus crisis.
Thank you for taking a few minutes to share your experience with members of Congress!
