    Only on the weekend able to leave voice message to the Governor, the AG’s office was closed for comments, til Monday.

    Said from Island, and we appreciate it, and hang tough, is tough environment to work toward what is a better future, but keep doing it, we are behind you, and every one will be, one day…

    Made personal comment to staff member at Governors office; said he’d pass it on to her. Unfortunately I was unable to talk with anyone in AG’s office (kept ringing once I got in the cue)

    Called both Governor Whitmer and AG Nessel. It took a few attempts to get through to both because of busy lines, but finally talked to a human being, in both cases, who listened to my opposition to Line 5 in the Great Lakes and pledged my support of the Governor and AG in opposing the pipeline. They assured me my calls had been noted and will be passed on.

    Made calls. Spoke to two real people who thanked me and told me they would pass on my message. I didn’t use script. I kept it short, identified myself as a MI resident who voted for both of them. Told them to keep up the good work on this very important project, perhaps the most important thing they’ll do in office.

    Had no trouble leaving a message for Gov Whitmer. However when I called AG Nessel’s office they acted like it was very odd I wanted to leave a message, transferred me a couple times and then eventually gave me an email address. Which I sent a message too.
