ICYMI: Washington Resident Receives Hice Headliner Award
“Ruth Rogers is a public servant whose dedication to beautification efforts have made Washington a better place in which to live,” said Congressman Hice. “Mrs. Rogers is a retired schoolteacher who utilized an outdoor classroom to instruct her students in engaging, planting projects. An avid and knowledgeable gardener, she previously ran a part-time greenhouse endeavor in the community, and she has dedicated her time to church, school, and retirement groups to share her skills and encourage others. It is heartening to know that there are people like, Mrs. Rogers, who take pride in their community. Thank you, Mrs. Rogers, and to everyone who has enriched the City of Washington with this beautification project.”
The City of Washington, with the support of Mayor Bill DeGolian, City Administrator Jerry deBin, and Economic Development Director Janet Parker, nominated Mrs. Rogers for this honor.
“On behalf of the City of Washington, we are grateful for Mrs. Rogers’ time and concern for our town,” said Janet Parker, Main Street Economic Development Director. “Her vision for Washington is to have a downtown area ‘second to none in beauty,’ and through her persistent efforts she continues to make Washington an attractive place for its citizens to live. She truly is a tremendous asset to our community.”

Help with a Federal Agency
One of the most important things I do as a U.S. Representative is help constituents work through issues with federal agencies. Although I cannot override the decisions made by a federal agency, I can often intervene on a constituent’s behalf to get answers to questions, find solutions, or just cut through the red tape. Below you will find a list of agencies with which I can help you. However, regardless of which agency you need help navigating, you must complete a privacy authorization form to comply with the provisions of the Privacy Act. Please download this printable version of the casework authorization form and then fax or mail to the address listed under the agency from which you are seeking assistance.Casework Authorization Form
