There is a false presumption here that anyone writing letters will be "speaking for the community" when in fact they might as well (and should, imo) speak for themselves.
One person is not a lobby..

You can certainly raise personal concerns.. this is your right.. no one has anything to say about who you write letters to about what.
As a concerned citizen.. it is your right..

It is also their right to ignore you....

To affect change or even to get attention you need to have an organization of like minded people .. who are likely to VOTE based on the issue at hand.
