Dear [Decision Maker],

As we celebrate Sunshine Week this year on the 262nd birthday of President James Madison, one of the earliest open government advocates, it's fitting to remember President Madison's own words: "A popular Government without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a prologue to a farce or a tragedy; or, perhaps both."

As your constituent, I urge you to promote a more open and accountable government in all legislation that you consider.

An open and accessible government is an essential part of our democracy.
