by the numbers – serving you

Oct 25, 2018


As your voice in Congress, I’ve always made it a priority to be accessible and available across all ten counties in Eastern Washington. This Congress, which began in January 2017, I’ve had 12 town hall events, and hosted nearly 1,000 meetings with constituents.

Just last week, I launched an interactive map on my website to be more accountable and transparent to you.

To date, I’ve logged thousands of miles listening to people across Eastern Washington, and I’m taking action to deliver results for you. Here is a look at my work this Congress by the numbers (as of October 19, 2018):

113,620 – Emails, letters, and phone calls to constituents who reached out
3,232 – Constituents who enjoyed a Capitol tour from my staff
926 – Total meetings held with constituents
546 – Total number of constituents and their families helped through casework
187 – Flags ordered through our office and flown over the Capitol
146 – My office helped veterans navigate the VA to receive the care they earned
102 – Local media availabilities
98 – People who received checks from the Social Security Administration with my office’s help
12 – Town halls to listen to your stories and hear your concerns
10 – Number of my bills that passed the House of Representatives
6 – Number of my bills signed into law

Embracing change, being innovative, and seeking to provide excellent constituent services all comes back to one thing: my mission to restore trust and confidence in representative government for you and the people of Eastern Washington.
