I’m here to serve you, my constituents

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

By Rep. Jerry Carl

While securing our southern border, cutting wasteful government spending, and holding the Biden administration accountable are a few of my top priorities, I also make sure my team and I are doing all we can to work on your behalf with federal agencies. This is one of the most important parts of my job as your representative, and I have found many people don’t realize the different ways my office can help constituents.

Since taking office in January 2021, we have successfully resolved thousands of constituent service cases. These include recovering millions of your dollars from the IRS, ensuring our veterans receive all the benefits they’ve earned from the Department of Veterans Affairs, nominating young people for service academies, fixing small business administration matters, aiding thousands with FEMA assistance, and expediting passport renewals.

Passport renewals are something we deal with on a daily basis. With summer approaching and many people traveling, now is a good time to make sure your passport is up to date. If your passport expires soon and you plan to travel internationally this year, now is a good time to book an appointment to renew.  If you have any trouble at all getting an appointment booked, my office will gladly help you speed up this process.

These are just a few different ways my office can work on your behalf with a federal agency, and we’ve got a great team of folks who are always ready to help where we can. Serving the people of Alabama’s First Congressional District is the honor of a lifetime, and my staff and I work tirelessly to ensure the government works for you, instead of the other way around.

If we can ever be of service to you, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. You can do this either by visiting my website (carl.house.gov) and selecting from the drop-down menu titled “Services,” or you can call my office during normal business hours at 202-225-4931.
