Dear Sir or Madam,


Model Answer:

Dear Sir or Madam,

Your newspaper has a reputation of talking about different issues, related to the development works and improvements in our town, and I sure hope that you would take notice of this particular issue as well and publish it on your newspaper in order to attract the attention of the authority.

The issue is related to the improvement of shopping facilities in the Ferguson area where I like to visit and do shopping. Of course, I do not really have much complain about the shops in my area since most of them are generally offer affordable prices and carry quality products. I also like the fact that most of these shops are easily accessible from all directions. But, when it comes to keeping the parking spaces in front of the shops clean and tidy, as well as offering some extra sitting arrangement or resting places for the tired and elderly shoppers, the shops in my area certainly could use some improvements.

Therefore, I suggest that the shops employ enough staffs to keep the parking spaces clean while providing some comfortable sitting arrangement also for the elderly shoppers to rest. I hope you will publish an editorial in your newspaper regarding this.

Thank you in advance.

Yours faithfully,

Lydia Olivia
