Loveland Chamber of Commerce

How do I write a letter to the editor?

The Chamber Advocacy Toolkit is designed to provide you and your business with resources, references, and guidelines for effective involvement in the policy making arena. Below you will find a wide assortment of information and tools for you and your employees to utilize.

  • Personalize your letter and provide examples on how your business will be affected by a particular issue.
  • Keep your comments short and focused. A succinct comment will have more impact than a longer one.
  • Limit your letter to roughly 200 words or less.
  • Include your name, address and telephone number.
  • Send your letter to multiple newspapers, this will increase the chances of publication.
  • Send a copy to your elected officials (i.e., city councilor, county commissioner, state legislator and/or federal legislator).
  • And please copy the Loveland Chamber of Commerce (dixie@loveland.org or 5400 Stone Creek Circle, Loveland, CO 80538)
