Dear Public Servants,
I write today to request that you represent the many Nashvillians who oppose budget cuts to our public library. As a citizen and a parent strongly vested in community building and cultural offerings on an equal playing field, I ask you to stand strong for our public library’s programming.
The proposed cuts would reduce children’s programming at the downtown library alone by a minimum of one third, thereby denying our smallest citizens a rich cultural resource and punishing our city’s next generation of leaders by our misguided sense of balance. I encourage you to contact me to speak further about this issue, and thank you in advance for your response.
With all good wishes and hope for all our children,
[organization if applicable]
