Putting Constituents First
           Congressman Langevin in front of the Johnson's house

Dear Friends,

Congress can be unpredictable, but one thing I have total control over is the quality of constituent services my office provides. My Rhode Island office is dedicated to returning every phone call and helping every constituent we can, and there is nothing more rewarding than facilitating a successful resolution.

Promoting constituent services was one of the reasons I launched my Lunch with Langevin program – giving me the opportunity to connect one-on-one with constituents. More than 60 Rhode Islanders attended last month. In a story in the Cranston Herald, one constituent said, “I get the impression he really likes to speak with his constituents on a personal level. He doesn’t have to do these events, but he does. He cares.”

I do care, and I’m so glad that constituents are getting to see that and are getting to know me better through Lunch with Langevin.

Fresh off a fantastic Lunch with Langevin, I was ecstatic to add another success story to the books. Kathy Johnson reached out to my office because she and her husband, Emile, a Vietnam War veteran, had fallen upon tough times and their roof needed repairs. We made some calls and connected with Team Rubicon, Operation Stand Down Rhode Island and Team Depot to help a veteran in need. The Johnsons now have a new roof and a new hot water heater, and the peace of mind that comes with it. Emile served our country with distinction, and supporting him now is the least we can do.

When it comes to constituent services, we can’t solve every problem. But we will always try. That’s what I’m here for.

            Sincerely,

           Rep. Langevin's Signature

#AskLangevin
I’m always looking for new ways to engage constituents and get feedback about my work in Washington. In addition to Lunch with Langevin, I host in-person town hall meetings where attendees can ask questions freely. On May 9, from 12 to 1 p.m., I’ll be engaging a new audience of constituents with my first-ever Twitter Town Hall. Ask a question using the hashtag #AskLangevin, and follow along on my page at Twitter.com/JimLangevin.

Cyber Leadership
As co-chair of the Congressional Cybersecurity Caucus and a longtime champion for cybersecurity, I am proud to have played an integral role in convincing the Obama Administration to renegotiate the Wassenaar Arrangement, an agreement between 41 countries that regulates exports. The agreement would have had unintended consequences on cybersecurity research, so I rallied 124 of my colleagues in Congress to sign a letter urging President Obama to make revisions. My hard work paid off, and I look forward to working with Wassenaar partners to bring negotiations to a successful conclusion.
