    I am writing letters to invite elected officials to an event at our church and I'm unsure how to address each official in my greeting/salutation. What is the proper way in which I should address my greeting to a state official (i. e. a governor), county official (i. e. County Treasurer, commissioner, etc.), or a city official (i. e. city council person, etc.)?
    Thank you for your time
