My Staff Goes the Extra Mile to Serve Iowans
Thursday, May 7, 2020
I have six offices located in Cedar Rapids, Council Bluffs, Davenport, Des Moines, Sioux City and Waterloo.
My state staff serves as my eyes and ears in communities from one side of the state to the other.
From the Mississippi to the Missouri Rivers, they have their fingers on the pulse of Iowans.
This pandemic is no exception. They are working tirelessly to troubleshoot problems Iowans are facing related to the public health emergency and economic fall-out.
No matter the concern, problem or circumstance that’s affecting a farm, business, school or local hospital, my staff is on the ground, ready to help.
In the early weeks of the pandemic, they helped troubleshoot issues for Iowans who were overseas to get back home to the United States.
Since Congress passed the CARES Act, they have answered countless questions from Iowans about the Paycheck Protection Program, Economic Injury Disaster Loans and Economic Impact Payments.
Whatever the question or red tape may be, my staff goes the extra mile to serve Iowans.
They do whatever it takes to track down an answer and help make government work for the people.
As always, they are in the trenches during this pandemic, working to help Iowans get through this together.
