STATE AND COUNTY SERVICES

One of our most important jobs is to help individual constituents navigate State services and benefits. My office manager, Jennifer Barra, loves the challenge of finding the right person at the right State entity to address your concern.  If it is not State jurisdiction, we will direct you to the right City or Federal agency.

My first year in office a big part of our job was working closely with the unemployment office to help constituents resolve issues with their claims, as well as connecting people with vaccines and tests for COVID.  Now, the concerns are as varied as the residents of our district.  Our neighbors are best situated to identify problems where they  live, work and play.  Whether it is traffic hazards, school facilities, chronic criminal activity, pollution, stream blockage, or lack of State services, nothing feels better than making it right.
