    HOW TO ADDRESS A LETTER THROUGH THE CHAIRMAN OF A POLITICAL PARTY TO THE GOVERNOR

    Hello, please I just need a sample of how to write a letter through someone in authority, for instance, a political party chairman to a governor or the president. i do not need the body of the letter. All I want is just how to address it at the top of the letter before the body.

    Welcome to the forum.

    You can start with:

    Dear Mr/Mrs/Miss/Ms + surname
    Dear Governor + surname
    Dear President + surname (or possibly Dear Mr President - you'll need an AmE speaker to clarify this)

    I believe that, in the past in the UK, letters were sometimes addressed to "Mr Chairman" but I think that's probably outdated now. Bizarrely, if the chairman was a woman, they were addressed to "Madam Chairman". I don't know what the current PC term is - chairwoman, maybe, or possibly chairperson.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
