Congressman Neguse Returns Over $1 Million to Constituents, Answers 100,000+ Letters

Casework requests and constituent engagement have both skyrocketed amidst the pandemic

 

Washington D.C.—Today, Congressman Joe Neguse announced that his office has saved over $1 million dollars for constituents in his district and has responded to over 100,000 letters, emails and phone calls since he took office last year. Since the onset of the COVID-19 outbreak, his office has seen increased engagement from constituents through phone calls, emails, letters, and higher volumes of casework requests. Constituent advocates have worked with the State Department to help stranded constituents return to Colorado, helped connect constituents with the appropriate state and federal agencies for questions regarding stimulus checks, unemployment claims, and small business assistance, and Congressman Neguse has held 8 virtual town halls to answer questions about the virus, PPP and EIDL loans, stimulus checks, unemployment benefits and more. 

 

“The pandemic has left many individuals in our community facing tremendous hardships as they deal with the impacts of this public health emergency and the economic crisis our nation is experiencing. As this unprecedented moment squeezes businesses, personal finances, and available resources, many more constituents are coming to our office for help,” said Congressman Joe Neguse. “Staff in my district offices have been working tirelessly to address and assist with the many questions and cases raised by constituents over the last few months: fixing issues they are having with the IRS or the Small Business Administration, and helping them navigate the resources and options available to them during this difficult time. We’re incredibly grateful every time our intervention helps return sometimes hundreds or thousands of dollars to a constituent in our district.”
