WASHINGTON –U.S. Senator John Boozman is celebrating his 100th mobile office and the thousands of Arkansans helped by the constituent services provided by his staff.
Boozman will join members of his team at the 100th mobile office on Friday, November 6 from 9 to 11 a.m. at the Fayetteville Chamber of Commerce to continue his commitment to Arkansans by helping those who are having problems involving the federal government and to hear their thoughts about legislative issues.
“I’m proud of the work my staff and I do on behalf of hardworking Arkansas families. We’ve been able to make a real difference in the lives of Arkansans, helping thousands of people with a wide range of matters involving federal agencies. From the IRS, Social Security, Medicare, VA, international adoption, visas and many other issues, we can help navigate the roadblocks with government agencies. My goal is to provide access to the help Arkansans need. Mobile office events are a critical component to delivering that service,” Boozman said.
Since Boozman began serving Arkansas in the U.S. Senate, his office has received more than 15,000 requests for assistance.
Here are some examples of issues his office has been able to resolve:
- A widow whose husband had been approved for Social Security benefits but never received his back-pay.
- A couple went to Florida to get on a cruise and realized they had lost their passports on the drive down.
- A veteran was not authorized a medal because his records were destroyed in a fire in St. Louis in the 1970s.
- An Arkansan teaching in China had a stroke in the Beijing airport. His family needed help to get him safely back to Arkansas.
