SERVING NEVADA’S THIRD DISTRICT

  • “In the 23 days I had been dealing with unemployment, I made more than 6000 phone attempts, numerous faxes and emails without even an acknowledgement, I decided to contact Susie Lee’s office to see if I could get any support. First of all, I was surprised when I actually got a live person on the phone. I fully expected to get a recording. After we spoke for the first time, I was hoping that you would be able to help. And whatever you were able to do for me, I so appreciate. It looked like on Friday my pending issues went away. Then over the weekend I began to see where my claims were being processed and it was showing me some dollar amounts. Then last night I saw that there was money on my debit card. I was so overjoyed and broke down in tears again. This time they were happy tears and tears of relief. This morning we were able to get some cash and pick up our much needed prescriptions. Your kindness in this time of crisis was so appreciated. I walked away from our few phone calls with the feeling that there are people out there who really do care. I hope Susie Lee knows what a kind and compassionate woman she has working for her. Thank you so much for listening (people don’t do a lot of that these days) and helping. You kind of renewed my faith in the human race and reinforced that there are still good and kind people out there willing to help.” – Pam

  • “I found myself in a tough situation due to the state's inability to respond to so many who had filed for unemployment assistance due to being furloughed. It was not an easy situation. I tried every avenue to try to get a response or some help and finally was given some assistance. Let me tell you that you have a gem in your office! She was kind, compassionate, cheerful and so amazing! She contacted me immediately and took all my information and kept right on top of things until I got paid. I am so grateful. I know the offices are overwhelmed and there is a lot to deal with to help everyone. Whoever hired her was very lucky to find such a professional individual.” 

  • “On behalf of our entire team at Emerald Island Casino, I would like to take this time to thank Congresswoman Lee and her team along with our entire Nevada delegation for their tireless efforts in being a pivotal factor allowing small Nevada gaming companies such as ours to be included for consideration to participate in the most recent PPP relief funding program announced last week. It means the world to me and our team at Emerald Island Casino knowing that fine elected officials in Nevada like Congresswoman Lee worked tirelessly on behalf of our industry to help us all during this time of unprecedented dire need and direction from our elected officials and it is something that all of us will not soon forget.” – Timothy Brooks, Co-Owner of Emerald Island
