|Red Tape Cutters|
|Thursday, July 28, 2011|
As your representative in Congress my staff of red tape cutters stand ready to assist you with any governmental problem you might have. I understand how challenging it can be to deal with the Federal bureaucracy. Feel free to call, write, fax, or e-mail us about your concerns, and we'll do our best to help you.
How to get assistance
If you have an issue with a federal agency, please contact either office by telephone, fax, mail or email. In order to assist you with your casework we need your permission to contact the appropriate federal agency on your behalf.
In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, the individual needing assistance is required to complete a privacy release form, which gives the agency permission to release information to our office. The form must be signed by the person directly affected or, in the case of USCIS, the person petitioning the agency. Once we have the release, we can begin to work on your case.
As soon as the completed privacy release is received, our office will submit a formal congressional inquiry on your behalf. When we receive any information regarding your case, you will be promptly notified.
Although I cannot force an agency to expedite your case or act in your favor, the office can frequently intervene to facilitate the processes involved, encourage an agency to give your case consideration and sometimes advocate for a favorable outcome. We look forward to assisting you with your federal issue. Please send all related correspondence, including the privacy release form, to either our Corpus Christi or Brownsville Offices:
Attn: Felicia Hajek
101 N. Shoreline Blvd., Suite 300
Corpus Christi, TX 78401
Attn: Michelle Gloor
5606 North Navarro Street
Victoria, Texas 77904
While we are ready to assist you with your federal issues, there are some matters that fall outside the jurisdiction of the United States House of Representatives.
We are unable to intervene in county, city or state matters, including:
For matters involving state agencies, you may contact the the Governor of Texas:
House rules also restrict us from being able to offer legal advice or provide attorney referrals. You can contact the State Bar of Texas at 512-427-1463 for a listing of attorneys licensed to practice in the state.
