To complete this affidavit, please fill in the appropriate blanks with your name, address, and the
approximate number of inmate calls you receive. Then please identify the facilities from which you
received calls. A check mark next to the name(s) will do the trick. It is not necessary that you check off
every facility from which you receive calls. However, if you have spoken to prisoners at both state and
county facilities, please identify at least one state and one county facility on the list.

In addition to stating that the cost of calls is too high, the affidavit also states that the phone service is
poor. A number of people are having problems with bad reception, dropped calls, and excessive playing
of recorded messages. If you are NOT troubled by the quality of calls from prisoners, please simply
delete this line or black it out.

Please sign and date the form and mail it to me:

If you prefer an affidavit with your information already filled in (one ready to print, sign, and send)
please contact me at 203-500-0666 or by email at I would be more than
happy to customize an affidavit for you.

I look forward to working with you.

day/week/month/year from prisoners of correctional facilities in the Commonwealth.
   5. I pay the phone company or its agent or affiliate for the above-described calls.
