From Senator Al Franken:
I want to begin by wishing all the people in Minnesota’s Hmong Community a very happy new year (Nyob Zoo Xyoo Tshiab 2010).
Since being sworn in as Minnesota’s U.S. Senator in July, it has been an honor to work on behalf of all Minnesota families, businesses and communities. As we move into the new year, I want people in the Hmong community and across Minnesota to know that my offices in Washington, D.C. and in Minnesota can serve them in a variety of ways.
If you have a problem with a federal agency, want to express an opinion, or need information about a wide variety of issues, call either my St. Paul office at 651-221-1016, or my Washington, D.C office at 202-224-5641.
You can also contact me, as well as keep track of my work and what is going on in Congress, by accessing my Senate web site at www.franken.senate.gov.
Here are some of the ways I can assist you as your Senator:
Help with dealing Federal Agencies – As a member of the United States Senate, one of my most important duties is to help Minnesotans who are facing issues with federal agencies. My staff can assist you on a wide range of issues and can work with you to answer any questions you may have about federal programs.
U.S. Military Academies – Each year I will nominate several talented young Minnesotans to one of the U.S. Military Academies, including the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, the U.S. Naval Academy, the United States Air Force Academy, the United States Coast Guard Academy, and United States Merchant Marine Academy. My staff can help interested Minnesotans apply.
Breakfast with Al – All Minnesotans are welcome to join “Breakfast with Al” in the Washington, D.C. office each Wednesday morning that the Senate is in Session.
Flag Requests – My office can help Minnesotans who want to purchase an American flag which has been flown over the United States Capitol to honor a friend or relative, or mark a birthday, anniversary, memorial or other special occasion.
As I have traveled across Minnesota the past few years, I know that one of the best ways to keep in touch is by listening to Minnesotans. If you have an opinion on an issue or an idea for legislation please don’t hesitate to contact me.
I look forward to working with you in the New Year.
