One of the most important and fulfilling things I do as a U.S. Representative is make sure my constituents have support when dealing with a federal agency. Although I cannot override the decisions made by a federal agency, I can often intervene on a person's behalf to answer questions, find solutions, or just cut through the red tape. During my first term in Congress, my office has returned over $2 million to Central Coast residents.
Hear first-hand from Suzanne, a retired elementary school librarian from Santa Barbara who had her Social Security benefits wrongly deducted for five years. Within a couple of months, my staff was able to resolve the issue.
Below you will find a list of agencies that I can help you with. However, regardless of which agency you need help with, I need a completed privacy authorization form to comply with the provisions of the Privacy Act. Please fill out the casework form, and my staff will contact you and send the privacy authorization form.
