5th District Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty is touting work she did to help a Danbury family after meeting them at a Congress on your Corner event. Last week, Esty announced the launch of “Constituent Corner” on her website to highlight positive stories from people who sought assistance with the federal government through Esty’s office.
The latest story comes from Gail and Lew Sirico of Danbury. The Sirico family reached out to Congresswoman Esty’s office after falling behind on their mortgage when Lew got sick and lost his job. Esty’s office helped modify their monthly mortgage payments, which saved the family $5,100 and allowed them to stay in their home during this cold winter.
Esty says her reason for launching this website is simple, for people to hear more good news. She says she is excited by the work her office has done to help people receive the benefits they have earned and better understand the federal programs that are out there.
