Thank you for raising it for health
Dear [Decision Maker],
Thank you for raising it for health by supporting a $2.00 per pack cigarette tax increase in the Council's budget. The $2 increase to the cigarette tax is a Win-Win-Win for the District and estimated to:
1) Lower youth smoking by 20.6 percent and will keep about 2,400 kids from becoming adults who smoke,2) Help 5,300 current adults quit smoking with having dedicated funding for smoking cessation programs, and 3) Save 2000 lives!!
Thank you for caring about tobacco control issues in the District. You made the right, healthy, and life-saving decision for your constituents.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP][Your Email]
