Suggested Script for Calling Governor's Office
Hello my name is “your name”. Can I speak to the person that handles proclamations?
I am calling to follow up to a letter sent by the Pollinator Partnership requesting *STATE* proclaim Pollinator Week June 18-24, 2012. The Pollinator Partnership would love to publicize *STATE’S* support of pollinators to their constituents. Please let me know what I can do to move this proclamation forward.
Thank you for taking the time to speak with me. Have a great day.
