Hello, I'm Holly, and I intern down in Annapolis for Delegate Nathaniel Oaks, District 41. We are trying to pass a bill that would make BOTH the oriole and the raven our state birds.
Of course this is because of our football team. Besides that, a raven is surprisingly a very intelligent bird, with one of the largest brains out of all the birds... but I'll skip the rest of my testimony.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HELP ME PASS THIS
All you have to do, is call your district's delegate, whether you live in Baltimore... or even the Eastern Shore and tell them that you want the raven to be state bird too!

. Just follow the directions. Type in your address or click on the map with the "info" button, and your represenatives will show up. Remember to call your delegate (not senator or councilman).
Call anytime, chances are the delegate won't be at their desk when you call. Leave a message! Whether it's a voicemail or you speak to their aide, please just make your message clear.
Here is a sample of what you could say: Hello I am John Doe and I am calling from Rockville, MD. Please give Delegate ______ the message that both the raven and the oriole should be Maryland's state birds, and to please vote for the bill that will pass it. Thank you.
The more times you call and leave annoying messages, the more likely it will get passed. Call everyday if you can!
Please, and thank you soooooo much!!!
If you have any questions, let me know. You can even call Delegate Oak's office at 4108413283 and speak to me. I'm at my desk Tuesdays and Thursdays 9 to 5, but if you leave a message anytime, I will get it and get back to you. Just ask for Holly concerning the ravens bill.
