Dear [Decision Maker],
As a resident of Shreveport, I am excited to see the city take action to improve the health of our community with the proposed smoke-free ordinance, but I am disappointed that all employees in Shreveport are not protected equally. Please make the proposed ordinance comprehensive by ensuring all indoor workplaces in Shreveport are smoke-free, including one of our largest employer groups - casinos. Casino workers have some of the highest health risk in our community. At work, they are continuously exposed to 7,000 chemicals that cause cancer and other serious illnesses. With COVID-19, secondhand smoke puts these workers even more at risk.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP][Your Email]
