                    in the house of representatives

                         Friday, August 2, 2013

  Mr. TERRY. Mr. Speaker, I rise to honor the accomplishments of Susan 
Feistner. Susie recently retired from my congressional staff after 13 
years of dedicated and excellent service to the constituents of the 
Second Congressional District of Nebraska. I wish Susie all the 
happiness in the world she embarks on the next stage of her life.
  Susie served as my Senior Constituent Liaison in my Omaha 
Congressional Office. Susie handles immigration issues, and this was no 
small task. Over the years, she muddled through mounds of paperwork to 
find solutions for people and in many cases reunited families, helped 
with adoptions of foreign-born children and obtained last-minute visas 
and passports. She also referred people to attorneys for help in 
becoming legal citizens and helped many constituents navigate through 
the tangle of U.S. Immigration laws. Her tireless service made a 
difference in thousands of lives.
  Over the years, Susie has also been active in Republican Party 
politics and has worked for candidates up and down and the ballot. Her 
involvement in our political process to spread the Republican message 
of lower taxes and a strong national defense has been greatly 
appreciated. She has also been a steadying hand in my District Office 
and the constituents of Nebraska's Second Congressional District have 
benefitted greatly.
  I offer you a heartfelt thank you to Susie for her dedication. I am 
extremely proud of her contributions over the past 13 years and I am 
blessed to have had such a professional and hard working individual on 
my team.
  It is a privilege and an honor to have Susie as a part of Team Terry.
