Washington, D.C. – Today, Alaska Congressman Don Young launched a brand-new website to help constituents stay up-to-date with his work in Congress. This new site, which continues to be located at https://donyoung.house.gov, will also help constituents secure assistance with individual casework needs, grant applications, nominations to military service academies, and, when they can safely resume, tours of Washington, D.C.’s most important attractions. Visitors to the site can also keep tabs on Congressman Young’s impressive constituent service metrics this Congress, which total 1,907 Alaskans helped – among them 158 veterans – and over 119,000 letters, emails, and calls responded to. Nearly half of all internet traffic is carried out through mobile devices, and Congressman Young’s new site was carefully optimized for those using smart phones and tablets. The design of the site was heavily inspired by the State of Alaska. The impressive peaks of Denali greet visitors, helping to confirm that they have reached the website of the Congressman for ALL Alaska.
Constituent service has always been one of Congressman Young’s highest priorities, and this new website allows Alaskans to keep track of the Congressman’s constituent service metrics. At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Congressman Young launched one of Congress’s first online Coronavirus Resource Centers. This resource page is located front and center to help Alaskans stay safe and healthy amid this pandemic.
All too often, constituents are unaware of the assistance Congressman Young and his staff can provide them. Congressman Young is proud to represent the entire State of Alaska in the U.S. House of Representatives. One of the most important things he does as Alaska’s representative is to help Alaskans with issues they may be experiencing with federal agencies. Congressman Young can often intervene on a person’s behalf to answer questions, find solutions, or use his experience and seniority to cut through red tape. This new website means it has never been easier for Alaskans to get the assistance they need, and Congressman Young’s available services are clearly and succinctly displayed on the home page.
“Serving Alaska in the House of Representatives is the honor of a lifetime. It truly means a lot to me when constituents come with their ideas and concerns, and this new website will make it easier for us to stay connected,” said Congressman Don Young. “Some of my biggest accomplishments grew out of ideas brought to me from Alaskans, and it is my job to bring those proposed solutions before Congress. If you think something in our country could be working better or differently, I want to hear from you. It is important that Alaskans know how to contact their sole representative in the House, so I hope that people across our state will share my new website with their friends and family so that I can better represent them. I hope you will enjoy my new website, and I encourage you to return frequently to see what I have been doing in Congress on your behalf.”
