Bill Nelson, Florida's best senator

The Major had been working with his Republican congressman to get some issues with a  VA calim resolved. After four congressional inquiries, The Major was not too impressed.

He checked his Democratic senators web site and found a link that indicated Senator bill Nelson would help cut through red tape: see

The major was able to get an appointment the same day with one of Senator Nelson's staffers: Shahra Anderson who is a Regional Director at the
Sam Gibbons Federal Courthouse in Tampa. She will transmit some of the major's documents to Senator Nelson's VA staffer who is in Orlando.
