St. Helena – Today, Rep. Mike Thompson (CA-05) released the following statement and statistics outlining important constituent service and legislative milestones over the last two years.

“The 117th Congress has been one of the most productive sessions of Congress in our nation’s history,” said Thompson. “We passed significant legislation that sets our country up for a strong and secure future while investing from the bottom up and middle out. Infrastructure, health care, climate change, supply chains, American manufacturing, and more were all addressed, and I remain focused on continuing to build on the progress we made over the last two years.

“I am particularly proud of the work my office was able to accomplish on behalf of the people of our district. I take pride in our constituent services, and with over 178,000 responses to constituent mail, over 4,000 cases closed, over $24 million returned to our district, my office delivered for many constituents. Going into the 118th Congress, constituent services will again take a front seat and I plan on improving these numbers.”

During the 117th Congress, Thompson reported 11 bills signed into law, 178,085 responses to constituent mail, 29 town halls and 831 Capitol and White House organized for constituents. He also was able to resolve 4,036 constituent cases and return $24,350,410 to constituents through the casework process over the past two years.
