I send a lot of emails - some important and some not. I often get replies for the important ones promptly, but the less important ones can often be forgotten.
I understand this - I'm sure I do the same sometimes.
This specific case is me emailing a local politician. We spoke at an open village meeting and I emailed to ask for clarification about something he said. He hasn't replied.
When I need an answer, how should I follow up? I will sometimes forward the email I sent onto them again, with a short message like "Hi, did you get a chance to take a look at this" - and then it's obvious I've been waiting. Is this too passive aggressive?
