Listening Ear, Man of Action

In 2012, during the election cycle, I approached Congressmember Capps about getting assistance for dental work I needed that would precede a heart surgery. Her office told me there was nothing that could be done. I was told her opponent had taken all the funding out when he was lieutenant governor. I was still under the impression that nothing could be done.

I went ahead and had the dental work done, but I still needed another dental procedure before I could have the heart surgery. I then contacted my Assemblymember Katcho Achadjian. Within a day or two, Katcho’s office called me. I was told “anything you need will be taken care of.” His office put me in contact with a care center that would do the dental work. It was all taken care of, and they also worked out a way for my insurance to cover the cost.

I’m voting for Katcho because he is a listening ear and a man of action. Katcho cares. He is the type of community-driven leader we need.
