We love getting feedback from readers!

Susan Gay sent us an email about the Virginia Legislative Guide that was included in her January issue of Cooperative Living magazine. She wrote, "I want to communicate how much we appreciate and enjoy the Cooperative Living magazine each month. We particularly appreciate the January issue with the informative Virginia Legislative Guide. A recent poll indicated that the vast majority of Americans were unable to list the three branches of government, so this is most helpful! Love your recipes too. We are proud to be cooperative members."

Thanks for your letter and comments, Susan! If you have something you'd like to say, feel free to email us at [email protected] To view the Guide, click here: www.co-opliving.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/2020-legislative-guide_rev1-8.pdf
