Help with a Federal Agency
One of my most important duties as a member of Congress is to help constituents navigate federal agencies. While I cannot override the decisions made by a federal agency, I can often inquire on a constituent’s behalf to check on statuses, expedite service, find solutions, and try to cut through red tape. While I cannot guarantee you a favorable outcome, my staff and I will do our best to help you receive a fair and timely response to your concern. Residents of the 10th Congressional District of Washington can contact me for assistance in dealing with federal agencies.
