Did you know my office helps with veterans affairs and military services? Veterans and service members in CT-04 should contact my office for assistance with federal agencies.

Joshua Rodriguez, my veterans affairs caseworker, can help veterans and service members with claims, benefits, correction of military records, medals & awards and more. If you have a question about VA benefits, would like to apply for benefits, have a question about your application or need your case properly considered, Josh can help.

For assistance, please contact Josh at Joshua.Rodriguez@mail.house.gov and visit my website at /himes.house.gov/services/veterans-affairs for more information.

I just sent a letter to the president with more than 100 of my House Democratic colleagues telling him to stop his brinksmanship in Iran.
When we invest in our infrastructure, we invest in our future. Investing in our roads, our train systems, our bridges ensures a better Connecticut for you and your family. I'm committed to working on an infrastructure bill in this Congress, and I know my colleagues are as well. #InfrastructureWeek #BuildForTomorrow
Pick up a copy of today's @usatoday to read the piece that @senchrismurphy and I wrote on how the Trump administration is edging us closer to war with Iran. In the mean time I'll keep sounding the alarm. #NoMoreWar

As we wrap up National Small Business Week, I wanted to highlight my Jim on Your Job visits to local and small businesses around my district. 
I remain focused on helping these businesses grow and succeed, and will continue to provide tools and resources for the hard-working people and businesses who make our district a great place to live.  #SmallBusinessWeek #ShopLocal
It's #SmallBusinessWeek! Did you know there are 350,000 small businesses in Connecticut, and they employ over 750,00 people, which is almost 50% of the private workforce? #shoplocal #shopsmall
