9th Annual Jobs Fair: Securing jobs for Southwest Washington

It was an honor to host my 9th annual Jobs Fair for Southwest Washington residents last week. We had over 60 employers come out to connect with folks looking for new jobs and ways to advance their careers. My focus will remain on jobs and economic opportunity because with steady employment comes the ability to pay for groceries, cover medical bills, and put away money for retirement. In other words, a good job means security and dignity.

As your representative in Congress, I will continue to advocate for policies that spur job growth and prepare our residents for the employment opportunities right here. If you weren't able to attend our Jobs Fair, we have a list of employers who are hiring. Take a look here.

ASSISTING SOUTHWEST WASHINGTON RESIDENTS
Mr. Jon Stuewe of Centralia reached out to our office because he was having trouble obtaining an Enhanced Driver’s License (EDL). Mr. Stuewe was born in the Panama Canal Zone in 1948 which caused the Washington State Department of Licensing (WADOL) to question his citizenship. WADOL sent a verification request to U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) in order to confirm Mr. Stuewe’s eligibility for an EDL, however, it was having trouble obtaining a response from USCIS. We reached out to USCIS on his behalf and Mr. Stuewe’s case was pushed forward, and his citizenship confirmed.

Are you having trouble with a federal agency?

If you or someone you know needs assistance with a federal agency, please contact my Vancouver office at 360-695-6292, or through my website jhb.house.gov. While we can't guarantee an outcome, we will try our best to assist in any way we can.
