(La Porte County, IN) - Elected officials from both parties are being praised for their efforts to help veterans in the area.
La Porte County Democratic Party Chairman Dr. Vidya Kora says veterans have easier access to mental health services. Kora credited Republican LaPorte County Commissioner Rich Mrozinski and Democratic U.S. Congressman Frank Mrvan of Hammond.
Kora says Mrozinski pressed the Congressman to provide quicker service to veterans dealing with a mental health crisis. As a result, veterans can now dial 7 when they reach the Veteran's Administration and immediately connect to mental health services.
Kora says Mrozinski and Mrvan are examples for elected officials on what can be done with a bipartisan approach.
