WASHINGTON — As the spring break season comes to an end, I want to thank those folks from Georgia’s 10th Congressional District who made their way up to my office in Washington, D.C. We’ve welcomed families and school groups from across the district to the U.S. Capitol Building, the White House and more as they explored our nation’s capital. Booking tours like these is just one of the many services that I can provide to you.

As your representative in Congress, I’m proud that constituent service is a core function of my office. Whether that means interceding on your behalf with a federal agency or having a flag flown over the Capitol to commemorate an important life event, my office stands ready to serve you in whatever way we can.

One of the primary responsibilities near and dear to my heart is easing the thorny problems and headaches that you may experience when dealing with federal agencies. From the Social Security Administration to the Department of Veterans Affairs, if you need help receiving your benefits or clarifying issues, I have a team of highly trained experts who regularly handle these cases and are happy to assist you.

In student-related resources, this weekend marks our 2018 Congressional Art Competition celebration, where we will showcase the talents and artistic abilities of our local students. Supporting the arts through contests like this encourages our kids to follow their passion and allows family, friends, and the community to celebrate their success.

Young people may also choose to pursue opportunities to serve in our armed forces, and I’m proud to have the privilege of nominating exceptional young men and women to attend U.S. service academies, where they receive a top-notch education and some of the best leadership training in the world. After graduating, these outstanding young servicemen and women become commissioned officers and will serve our nation for at least five years. It has been a true pleasure to see the outstanding cadets and midshipmen over the past few years who have worked hard to earn this distinction.

At the end of the day, what’s important to you is important to me, and I make it a priority to be open and available to all of my constituents — regardless of political affiliation. It is one of the great honors of my life to serve you as your congressman, and I will do everything I can to ensure that those of you seeking help receive it.

If you, a member of your family, or someone you know needs assistance, I encourage you to reach out to my local office in Monroe at 770-207-1776 or my D.C. office at 202-225-4101. We would be pleased to help however we can.
