Emails to university admins

Dear Dietra,

Thank you for taking the time to meet with Nader Momtaz and myself. We are very excited to form a long-standing relationship with you and your office!

I know that you met with Nader and Scott briefly during the October Board of Visitors meeting and that they told you a little bit about Virginia OnAir and the work that we are doing to become a successful organization. Just to remind you, we are an elections and governance hub that provides information for Virginia voters so that they can become more engaged and informed when it comes time to cast their ballot. We also serve as a resource for those wishing to view their elected representatives more personally, by providing in-person video interviews with elected officials, broadcasting town hall events, and hopefully more in the future.

We have recently been in contact with Virginia21, of which I am the State-wide student leadership committee chair, about their potential partnership with Virginia OnAir. If we were to gain VA21 as our first official sponsor of the hub, hundreds of thousands of students would be armed with information heading into this election. We were wondering if there are any other organizations, similar in civic engagement nature, that would become a good partner for us in the future.

We are also looking to expand our advisory board. This group of professionals would serve as a resource for our student-run hub, and provide us with top-notch information so that we can continue developing ourselves civically and professionally. Finally, we are hoping that your office could become a resource to us. With all of the good that President Holton and yourself have already brought to GMU, we were interested to see if you had any proposed connections via the media that could potentially write a column or story on our progress thus far.

With all of the work that Nader and I, along with a dozen other college students are doing, Virginia OnAir is sure to be a success and ultimately serve as a model for other states in the coming months. Thank you for believing in us, and thank you for always advocating for students in Virginia. Our success is your success.

We look forward to seeing you tomorrow,

Katlyn Weiser

Email to Deb Wake

Dear Ms. Wake,

My name is Nader Momtaz and I am the Operations Director at Democracy OnAir. It was a pleasure to meet you last Sunday at the Redistricting Forum. I would like to start off by thanking you and the rest of the League of Women Voters of Virginia for allowing us to attend the event. I would also like to congratulate you for hosting such a successful event. I was truly fascinated by the turn out and how hospitable everyone representing LWV-VA was.
I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to introduce you to Democracy OnAir but I was wondering if I could get the opportunity to meet with you and show you more of what we are about and how what we do relates to the League of Women Voters. If that is possible, please feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience and we can move forward from there.
Thank you very much for your time and consideration and I look forward to hearing from you.
Best Regards,

Nader Momtaz
Operations Director
