    Template Letter

    Dear Councilman or (Councilwoman) [LAST NAME],

    As a constituent in your district of Baltimore County, I am writing to express my support for Bill 113-21 in favor of backyard chickens under one (1) acre in Baltimore County, MD.   

    I believe this bill is based on common sense, scientific facts, and addresses the issue in a way that is constructive and designed to truly care about the welfare of both county residents and the chickens that are at the heart of the issue. As a member or supporter of the Backyard Chicken Caucus for Baltimore County, I support the mission to seek and secure changes to the Baltimore County Code so that: 1) the requirement for a minimum of 1-acre of land is no longer a barrier, and 2) the County adopts common sense, factually informed laws regarding the keeping and raising of backyard chickens.

    I am asking you to consider voting YES to Bill 113-21 as a clean bill. Currently, we have over 1,647 signatures and counting from the petition created by the Caucus in support of this movement. You can learn more about backyard chickens and read about common myths surrounding backyard chickens as well learn the truth that dispels those myths or learn more about the Caucus and the work they are doing at the Backyard Chicken Caucus for Baltimore County.

    Thank you for your time and hope we can count on your vote.

    Sincerely,

    [YOUR NAME]
