    You might try a neighboring congressperson if your own critter isn't helpful.

    Anecdotal experience: A cousin was having trouble with a Federal Flood Insurance claim.  His Congressman was Ander Crenshaw (R-warm bucket of spit FL) with whom he has at most 2 degrees separation if not 0.  He turned out to be extremely useless.  Corrine Brown (D- could be better but still D) got gears turning and got needed action.

    Some Congress people recognize the importance of constituent service.  The way districts change and people move it's always to try to help.  Corrine believes in constituent service.

    Keep swinging and you'll find the help you need.

    Good luck.

    I screwed up with a careless uprate so I'm a "No Rate" pariah. When I give a comment "+4 n/t", please consider that a recommend. (That's my workaround to participate here). DK haiku, one complete thought in a title field. Roar louder! NR since 3/7/12.

      I don't know any of the Congress Critters - and they aren't going to help me, an out of state freak.  You can pretty much bet your bucks on that.

      I'm from Oregon - so I guess I could put a call into Merkley - but in Oregon I wouldn't be having this problem in the first place.

      And we sail and we sail and we never see land, just the rum in the bottle and a pipe in my hand...
