DMAS' "one-pager" handed to those in office - possibly illegal??

Concerned citizens are sending letters to those in office addressing several issues with EVV.  They have been rebuffed by a generic "one-pager" (nothing more than a definition of EVV) response handed to them by those in office.  From a letter directly from DMAS, those concerned citizens have learned that DMAS purposefully handed those in office these "one-pagers" as DMAS refers to them to hand out in response to legitimate concerns!  This is directly instructing those in office of how to respond to concerned citizens!  So, DMAS is in the business of telling those in office to purposefully IGNORE stakeholders by handing them a "one-pager" response crafted by DMAS??!  I am seriously concerned about what country DMAS thinks they are living in and they certainly are not following their own "person-centered" principles of "listening to the person"!  I am not even sure if DMAS telling those in office how to do their jobs AND IGNORE THEIR CITIZENRY is LEGAL!
