My name is____________, I am a constituent and I live
in___________. I am calling to leave a message for (Representative/Senator)
I am a member of the American Cancer Society Cancer Action
Network. The reason I am calling is because tobacco is the number one cause of
preventable death and increasing the state’s tobacco tax by $2 per pack is the
best way to encourage current smokers to quit.
The tobacco tax increase would also provide much needed
funding for Medicaid and programs that help people quit smoking.
I want (Representative/Senator)_____________ to know that I
am a constituent and want (Him/Her) to support the tobacco tax increase.
