News from Representative Rouzer


Dear Friends,

Next month, I’m hosting two events aimed at providing seniors of Southeastern North Carolina with resources to help answer any questions they may have about their benefits, legal matters, healthcare needs and more.  There will be two Senior Resource Fairs – one in Smithfield and the other in Southport.  

There will be representatives on hand from the Brunswick County Health Department and Johnston County Health Department to discuss maintaining good health in retirement, staff from the Social Security Administration to go over benefits, and representatives from Southport Senior Center and Community and Senior Services to discuss the aging process and what to expect.  In addition, a lawyer from our office will be present to discuss wills and other legal matters.  I encourage all seniors in Southeastern North Carolina to attend the events and spread the word to their friends and family.  




All Southeastern North Carolinian farmers should be aware that the Secretary of the United States Department of Agriculture, Tom Vilsack, designated the following counties in our District as primary or contiguous disaster counties due to losses caused by excessive rain and flooding that occurred from September 22 through October 4, 2015: Columbus, Sampson, Brunswick, Duplin, Pender, Cumberland, Johnston, Bladen, Lenoir, New Hanover, and Robeson.  Farmers in these eligible counties have eight months from the date of a Secretarial disaster declaration (October 21, 2015) to apply for emergency loans.  To receive further information or apply for emergency loans, please contact your local Farm Service Agency offices or click here for more information.

Former Washington, D.C. intern and Carolina graduate, Aakash S., interned in our office this past summer.  Aakash assisted our legislative team with budget legislation, answered constituent questions and gave U.S. Capitol tours.
