Congressman Carson Debuts “Carson in Your Corner” Video Series
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman André Carson today debuted the “Carson in Your Corner” video series to highlight constituent success stories in Indiana’s 7th Congressional District. The video series will emphasize services available through contacting Carson’s Office and introduce viewers to those who have benefitted from reaching out for help.
In August of 2007, U.S. Air Force Staff Sergeant Christopher Seligman was injured when an improvised explosive device (IED), also known as a roadside bomb, detonated beside his military vehicle in Baghdad, Iraq. When he returned home, Chris knew he faced significant challenges and a long road to recovery, but he did not anticipate that he would struggle to receive his Purple Heart, a military acknowledgment given to those wounded or killed during deployment.
After two years of trying on their own to fight through the red tape, the Seligmans reached out to Congressman André Carson for help.
**Members of the media interested in speaking with the Seligmans should contact Press Secretary Blake Johnson.
In addition to his legislative duties in Washington, D.C., Congressman Carson can assist 7th District constituents with a variety of services, including troubleshooting with federal agencies, offering grant support to community organizations, providing information and resources for small businesses, offering Congressional Recognitions for constituents who perform exemplary community service or have signature achievements, and assisting with scheduling Capitol and White House tours.
