Subject: I commend you Mr. Karygiannis


Hello Mr. Karygiannis,


I am sending you this email to commend you on your work as an advocate for the people in your riding I recently had to deal with the MPP and the MP’s office about….. I reached out to both offices and both office did not even truly try to advocate for me. They just regurgitated what the ….. people said, without really fighting on my behalf

The quality care and extreme advocacy work that you did on my behalf for …. was amazing. I will vote for you until the end as you have really shown me what a politician’s job truly is. The treatment that I am getting from both the MP and the MPP’s office is like night and day, compared to how hard you worked for me and …… I thank you so kindly and appreciate your efforts.
