Traci Farris: Denham rep came through in a pinch

February 26, 2014 

I would like to express my gratitude to Daron McDaniel, representative for Congressman Jeff Denham for his quick and effective response for my family during a very difficult time. My father has been dealing with severe health issues since November 2013, and our family was in a waiting pattern when it came to getting his insurance information processed so he could have a very important surgery. He was in the same boat as a lot of other Americans who were waiting for the kinks in the ACA (Affordable Care Act) to be worked out, only his was a very serious case and he needed immediate attention.

I approached Mr. McDaniel as a last resort and within three hours of speaking with him, we were well on our way to getting the much-needed information. His help resulted in my father receiving the attention he needed, and I cannot thank him enough.

I will never forget his words to me that day: “It is my job to help you and your family … this is what we’re here for.” Thank you, Mr. McDaniel, for being there for my family and helping to ensure that my dad would be here for us.
