Notes From The Community

I would like to sincerely thank you, Congressman Scott, and your staff for helping my husband, a U.S. Army Veteran, and I when we needed you most. This office was such a blessing to us. You worked with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development on our behalf to clear a report in their system that would have taken us years to resolve. We just can't thank you enough for all of your kindness and dedication. - Alisa W. | Stockbridge, GA
