Rep Ortiz Newsletter: Keeping in Touch

During campaign years, ethics rules recommend that legislators take a break from sending out "mass mailings" (both mail and electronic newsletters) within 30 days of a primary or general election. This is to help make sure state resources aren't used in a way that could be confused with "campaign mailings." So, while I am still very much working for the district, this will be my last e-news for a while. That said, please know I'm still here and available, so don't hesitate to reach out!
