Agency Help

Providing assistance to the citizens of the First Congressional District is one of my top priorities. If you are experiencing problems with a federal agency, my office may be able to assist you. While we cannot ask a Federal agency to do anything that is not in accordance with its rules and regulations, our goals are to ensure your rights are respected, and that errors in your record or procedure are corrected.
