Talking Information on Warden Loyd Massey - Polunsky Unit-Texas Prison

Does anyone know anything about Warden Massey at the Polunsky Unit? Is he a Christian, for or against prisoner rehabilitation, etc? I need to write a letter to him but would like to know a little about his background so I can try to reference some things and know the road to lead my letter down.

Thanks,
Cindy

When writing a Warden, it is best to just stick to the facts. He will respect you more if you are just yourself in the letter, without trying to play up to him. They get a lot of that. By trying to play up to him, you will actually put him on guard. They are used to people trying to run 'game' on them and try and get on their good side...wardens that is. Be yourself and state your case (whatever it may be). Anything else will set off red flags for him. He is a good Warden, so I have heard through the grape vine. Firm and fair. Dealing with Wardens and Regional Directors daily, that is what I would suggest. They will put up their guard the second they think you are not being yourself. Just write it as you would to anyone you know. Also, do not try to write beyond your realm. By that I mean, unless you are actually a lawyer...do not attempt to word your letter like you are one. Just my opinion though.

Gotcha! Do you think it would be best to type the letter or hand write it? That sounds dumb, huh?

I had a meeting with Warden Massey a couple of weeks ago and found him to be a very polite and approachable gentleman.

The best way to write a polite letter is to top and tail it in ink (Dear whomever and Sincerely John Doe) and type the body of the letter as normal.

Hope this helps!

I think you are better off either typing the whole thing and signing your name or just hand writing the whole thing. If you top and tail it, it ends up looking like a form/chain letter. Makes it was less personal. It seems more like a mass mailing that way...to me that is.

I know him. He is a fair man and if I had to guess I would say he is a christian. I used to work there. I thought he retired. I was trying to find out this myself.
