It is easy to provide comments, ask questions or ask for guidance from elected officials at Federal levels.
Our Representative Chris Gibson is from our New York 20th District. He can be contacted using this email webform. He is ex-military, a tea party Republican, who was elected in 2010 along with lots of others like him. Here is background about him from wikipedia.
Our senior Senator is Charles Schumer (contact information). Wikipedia has a background article about him.
Our Junior Senator is Kirsten Gillibrand (email webform). Wikipedia has a background article about her. She also uses this regular form of email: email@example.com and this format may well work for our other Federal elected officials as well - I'm not sure.
The White House also offers a web form to submit comments.
