Helping constituent navigate VA to obtain replacement CPAP mask

Congressman Daniel Webster

The federal government is a massive operation, and as your representative in Congress, it is my pleasure to assist you with issues involving federal agencies. Since January, my office has helped return over a million dollars to 33 families. Although my office cannot override or improperly influence decisions made by a federal agency, we can intervene on a person’s behalf to answer questions and find solutions.

A constituent from Leesburg contacted my office with an urgent need for a replacement CPAP mask, as well as trouble with the VA reimbursing him for travel mileage. My office contacted the Malcom Randall VA Medical Center in Gainesville, which responded the same day by overnighting a replacement mask to the constituent, and resubmitting all of his travel reimbursement claims to be processed for payment.

Constituent services is a critical element of our congressional office. The federal government is a massive operation, and my office is available if you ever need assistance in navigating the bureaucracy or cutting through red tape. We are here to serve you.

Congressman Daniel Webster represents The Villages in the U.S. House of Representatives.
