Frequently Asked Questions:

Below you will find answers to frequently asked questions I receive concerning the processing of incoming email and tips on how email messages can have the greatest impact.
Who can send and receive an email message?
My website uses zip code authentication to determine residency in my district. If your address indicates you are a constituent of mine, you will receive a response. If your address indicates you do not reside in my district, you will be directed to your elected Representative. Return to Top
When will you get my message?
My staff and I check email every business morning and several times throughout the day. Return to Top
How quickly will I receive a response back?
Because my office receives thousands of letters, phone calls, faxes and e-mails a week, handling this can be a challenge. However, listening and responding to your concerns is a priority of mine. My staff and I make every effort possible to ensure that each constituent who contacts my office receives a timely, accurate and thorough response. Many questions or comments are often answered the same day or day after receiving your message. Responses to some questions; depending on the complexity or amount of research required, the total volume of mail I am receiving at that time, and other factors, may take several weeks. If a response has not been received in quite some time or you have reason to believe your message to me did not go through, please call one of my offices. Return to Top
How will my message be handled?
If your message concerns a casework issue (problem you are having with a federal agency) or the services my office provides (flag request, internship, etc.), your email will be directed to the appropriate staff member who handles that issue or area for me in my district office. If your message is concerning a legislative matter, your position or view on the issue will be noted and a response will be generated by my staff and I in my Washington, D.C. office. Return to Top
How can my email message have the greatest impact?
Effective messages and those that have the greatest impact are ones that are from a constituent, stating a name and a complete home address, are in a constituent's own words and not copied from a form letter or web site, come directly from an individual and not through a lobbying or interest group, address a single issue, not a group of unrelated issues, appear in a concise, easy-to-read format.

Important notes: For district specific requests (i.e. Congressional Certificates, Proclamations, local events) please call one of my district offices. Due to additional mail screening, correspondence sent to my Washington, D.C. office by postal mail may be delayed up to 2 weeks.
