    Scott Surovell on-line constituent survey

    Surovell's constituent survey (now that he's filed all his legislation) is at scottsurovell.org/survey.

    He needs to get hammered with "NONE OF THE ABOVE" on his gun questions. When he initially went live with the survey, it did not include said option, and it was a "required" question -- needed in order to continue. I called him on it, and he "fixed" it by adding NOTA.

    If you're in the 44th, please answer it.

    You're right about his stance - for now. Until last year, his site was generally mute on guns. He sways with the Party, but needs to know that won't play here.

    The thing about Surovell is that he will do what the Party tells him to do - constituents be damned. (I personally believe if the Party platform included boiling little children in oil and serving them with pepper, he'd be explaining what a good idea this is -- yes, hyperbole, but he is a Party man through and through.) But he does share the results of his survey, usually during his town hall, which is coming up on the 25th. Slamming him with "none of the above" on that question WILL be noticed, even if it has no impact.

    If you don't want to participate in the survey, fine. I encourage participating because I know the information will get out, and I encourage everyone to participate in any legislator's on-line surveys to get our message across. NO MORE GUN CONTROL.
