Herb: Labrador Has Tiger In CdA Office

Herb Huseland: I’ve been very impressed with (Raul Labrador's) actions, not his words. I had been fighting with the V.A over a hearing disability that goes back to 1960, since 2004, when a V.A. doctor urged me to apply for service connected disability. Finally I appealed to Congressman Labrador’s office. Within two months and after being turned down three times, I got the disability through his office’s efforts. The person there now for constituent services is Tori Shockey. The previous one was told no chance, and she so informed me. Tori looked at the file when she took over and challenge them, She is a tiger. I didnt ask her where she worked before, but I will and report back. i was kind of surprised, too. My brother who is right of Ghengis Khan, explained to me that regardless of philosophy, every good congressperson pays close attention to constituent services. Tori is the best. Somewhere between a shark and tiger. (AP file photo)

Question: Do all congressional offices in the Coeur d'Alene area have strong constituency service?
