Want to email our new senator? UPDATED

Well, you can't. I reached out to our state representative Dan Miller, asking if he or his staff could locate Guy Reschenthaler's email address.

As always, I received a prompt and courteous response from his legislative assistant, Sheryl Cohen.

Good morning Elaine,

We have been told that Sen.  Reschenthaler does not have an email address for constituent use.  His office states that you should contact him through his website here:

Their office phone number is 412-571-2169 if you would like to speak to them further.

Hope you are staying warm,

Sheryl Cohen, Legislative Assistant
Representative Dan Miller
42nd District


Update January 27, 2016 1:19 PM Using the contact form on the senator's website, I asked for an email address for when I want to cc him on emails. Add this to your address books.

That's the first thing to complain to him about. He can't get away with no having an email address for his constituents. I am seething.

There is a link shown to contact him plus his phone number was provided. Why so upset about the little details?

I am with you, Lena. Because in 2016, our representatives should have an email address. Email is for better or worse a main means, if not the main means, of communication. He has a responsibility/duty as our State Senator to be available to and communicate with his constituents and to make that as easy as possible for those he represents.
