[IP] Fwd: Choi: "Inundated with calls."
I think we Got their Attention HAHA .. Way to go!!!!
>Hold the phones and faxes! It looks like Lauren Choi and the Gore 2000
>campaign are starting to get the message.
>Less than 1 hour after sending last night's email, we received a voice
>message from Lauren Choi. "I'm being inundated with calls about diabetes
>funding," she said. This morning, at 8:40am, she called again, saying
>that she was still being "swamped with calls" and asking us to stop.
>Well, I guess we've gotten her attention.
>Choi told ADA Vice President Mike Mawby that she had "gotten the message"
>about DRWG and diabetes funding. She also told him that she sent
>information about DRWG and diabetes funding to the VP's Domestic Policy
>Office in the White House. She said they're the ones who can direct NIH
>to fully implement DRWG this year.
>What next? Two things: (1) Stop calling/faxing Choi - She's gotten the
>message and we don't want to antagonize her, and (2) Pay attention to
>Gore's public comments - If he doesn't start talking about DRWG and fully
>funding diabetes research soon, we'll be back.
>In the meantime, we'll contact the VP's Domestic Policy Office to follow
>up. We'll urge them to direct NIH to fully implement DRWG this year.
>We've done a great thing! This is exactly how our government is supposed
>to work - responding to pressure from voters. Don't believe anyone who
>tries to tell you that these tactics are too aggressive. They work.
>Many thanks to everyone who called and/or faxed the Gore campaign. Your
>goodies will be in the mail shortly. We'll be in touch with an update soon.
