If You Send Representative Coleman Personal Information

My web site is set up not to collect your personal information (such as your name) about you when you visit the site unless you choose to provide that information to us.  My web site has an online web form that you can use to contact me by sending me an electronic mail message expressing your views or concerns or asking for assistance with a particular problem involving a state agency.  To send me an e-mail, the online web form asks you for your name, address, e-mail address, and, a contact telephone number to better assist you.  I use this information provided by you to contact you about the matter you expressed your views about and to provide any casework assistance I can regarding problems you may be experiencing in dealing with a government agency.  This information will be available to members of my staff so they can help me in responding to your message or request.

If you are requesting help with a casework matter, it also may be necessary for my office to share the information you provide in order to respond to your request.  My office will not share nonpublic information submitted to this office with persons outside the House of Representatives, other than to address constituent casework at your request, or in connection with a legal proceeding or potential investigation, or if the communications are potentially unlawful, or pose a risk to health or safety.

From time to time, the Representative may come across a comment made by a constituent, or a situation described by a constituent, in an e-mail message (as well as postal mail, phone calls, and faxes) that he feels makes a point of such general interest that he would like to refer to it in a speech, or include it in the House Daily Journal Record, or make some other public use of it, either in connection with debate in the House or by sharing it with the relevant government agency. Our staff makes every effort in such cases to contact the author first. If you intend your message to be confidential and would prefer that it not be used in such a way, please feel free to advise us of your preference in the message.
