I wanted to express my thoughts about what a fine Congressman we have in James Comer. After weeks of trying to obtain a passport from the office that we were sent to from the Houston area, I was having no luck and our trip was quickly approaching this Friday. Even though we were calling and emailing the office everyday it seemed that no one cared and everyday, someone took my number and said someone would return my call.
Late Wednesday night, acting out of seemingly hopeless desperation and knowing that our entire trip would have to be rescheduled, which would cost considerable amount of money and time, I reached out to James Comer. Immediately the congressman responded and within five minutes a young man from his Washington, DC was on the phone calling me.
This young man could have not been more willing to help and was very personable. He was not convinced they could get it done as quickly as needed, but was willing to help.
Just a few moments later, he called me to tell the passport is being overnighted to my home before noon tomorrow. I am flying home now from a business trip to get my girls who will be very excited, instead of extremely disappointed.
James Comer will always have my support. I think it is great to able share the story of a true public servant. - Mike Neal
