The campaign to get legendary Green Bay Packers guard Jerry Kramer inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame is at its apex today, as we at Acme Packing Company are joining with Packers blogs from around the world to show our support for this man and his contributions to the NFL and Green Bay.
As a player long-retired, the only pathway for Kramer to be enshrined is through election by the Seniors Committee. Numerous players, both teammates of his as well as opponents, have campaigned on his behalf - you can see many of the testimonials from these players here.
As described on the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s website, the Seniors Committee consists of “nine veteran members of the overall Selection Committee,” and we have the contact information for all of those individuals below. Therefore, today we are encouraging Packers fans to write to members of the Seniors Committee to express your support for Kramer’s selection. Please keep your letters, emails, Tweets, and messages respectful and help us show the class that Kramer himself is known for.
Also, we encourage you to use the hashtag #JerryKramer4HOF all over social media today as this campaign continues to build up steam.
