I contacted his state Senate office about a year ago concerning our denial of Katie Beckett/Deeming Waiver Medicaid - Medicaid made available to special-needs children. I received immediate help, they made follow-up phone calls to me and kept in contact with me! I also contacted Rep. Ben Harbin, with no response, and Gov. Sonny Perdue, with a three-month delayed response that amounted to rhetoric. Had it not been for Jim Whitehead, my 3-year-old would not have the benefits she has had this past year.
Am I concerned about his stance on the controversial Iraq war? No, I am concerned about his ability to serve the people living in his district, and he has proven to me that he does his job unlike so many others that forget about the voters once they get elected. Vote for Jim!
