Julia Silge, a 38-year-old, from Utah, wanted to let her voice heard about President Trump’s nominee for education secretary, Betsy DeVos, DeVos’s final Senate confirmation hearing tomorrow.
DeVos’s final Senate confirmation hearing is tomorrow.
For weeks, Silge had tried dialing the Salt Lake City office of Sen. Orrin G. Hatch, without any response from the office. After trying multiple times, Silge thought of a creative way to reach her senator. A Pizza!
A ham and pineapple pizza delivered straight to the office of her senator with a note. The note says:
“From a Salt Lake constituent in 84105: Please vote NO on Betsy DeVos. She is an inappropriate choice to lead our public schools.”
Silge tweeted the whole part online.
My senator’s local office is not answering his phone, and his voicemail seems to be full. pic.twitter.com/WGbvAYlSw0

Without much of a surprise, the pizza wasn’t accepted by the office. She did get a call from the security office of the senator!
Guess she learned her lesson.
AN UPDATE: I later received a call from security at the SLC federal office building, so maybe think twice about this approach. pic.twitter.com/nJ8cCDX1sl
