How Can I Help You?
Dear Friends,

As the August District Work Period comes to a close, I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to spend so much time with 10th District residents. I’m always glad to meet with folks who remind me of the real reason I’m in Washington – to represent you.

A huge part of my job serving the people of Georgia’s 10th Congressional District includes intervening on your behalf with federal agencies like the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) or Social Security Administration.

Just this year alone, my office has recouped more than $5 million in taxpayer money to folks in our district through grants, scholarships, and benefits. While we can’t guarantee the outcome of your case, we do promise to go to bat for you and work to get the answers you deserve. Recently, my office heard from a few constituents in response to their cases.

A veteran from Thomson said:
“I was exposed to Agent Orange in Korat and Udorn Thailand in 1969 during the Vietnam War and I now have Prostate Cancer and many other diseases. Almost five years ago [ I ] put in a claim to the VA for the presumptive disease of Prostate Cancer and my claim was denied at every step. About a year ago I wrote and asked for your help and you sent me to Beth Goolsby. I had almost given up and with her help things started looking up. Now over four and a half years later the Judge at the Board granted my claim. She actually had tears when I told her I had finally been approved. I am so thankful for people like you and her and I want to thank both of you from the bottom of my heart. Thank you again for the great job you do!!!”

A family from Watkinsville wrote in the following note after our office helped a citizen obtain his birth certificate from a U.S. Air Force Base abroad:


If you or someone you know is in need of assistance, I encourage you to reach out to my office. We are here to serve you, and we take that responsibility very seriously. To contact my office, call my Monroe District Office at (770) 207-1776 or my Milledgeville District Office at (478) 457-0007 or visit my website here.


A Service Academy Update
I recently received an update from one of the very first students whom I had the honor of congratulating for receiving a United States Service Academy appointment: Jarrett “Jett” Joyner. Jett graduated from Ola High School in 2015 and earned an appointment to the U.S. Air Force Academy, where he’s been ever since. He is now heading to Columbus, Mississippi to begin Undergraduate Pilot Training as a Second Lieutenant. Congratulations, Jett, we’re all incredibly proud of all you’ve accomplished!

If you or a young person you know is interested in serving our Nation by attending a service academy, I encourage you to sign up for my quarterly newsletter here. For those of you who are already working toward this goal, I want to remind you that the deadline to submit your applications to my office is coming up next month on Friday, October 11 at 5:00 p.m. Head to my website for more information on this process.

Taking on the Collusion Delusion
On the heels of the DOJ's Inspector General’s report digging into former FBI Director James Comey and his actions following Donald Trump’s election, Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) discusses the disturbing behavior and abuses of power at the highest levels of our justice system to take down the president. It’s simply more evidence of the Democrats’ collusion delusion to justify their no-holds-barred approach to the Trump presidency.

On the Ground in Lexington and Lincolnton
Team Hice is coming your way! If you’re experiencing difficulties dealing with a federal agency and need help, I encourage you to stop by one of my Mobile Office Hours this month. For September, trusted members of my constituent services team will be on hand in Oglethorpe and Lincoln counties to sit down with you to discuss your concerns. Again, while we can’t guarantee the outcome of your case, we will do our utmost on your behalf.
