I need a haircut too – but open the local UIA offices


I need a haircut too — and yes — hair stylists are educated, licensed, responsible individuals. But I need a someone to answer the phone, return an email or answer an online chat at the UIA. Better yet, open the local UIA offices.

Having the bars/hair salons open is not essential. Don’t get me wrong, it’s great to have a beer and dinner with a great hair cut at Herb’s Bar. She has great food. But open the UIA offices for people like myself to get my claim fixed. I am working part-time from full time. I have been working on my claim (April 11th) over 68 hours of on the phone and computer trying to contact someone at the UIA and seven letters to the UIA — with no response or direction from them. I know for a fact I am not the only one having issues. Others go back as far as beginning of the pandemic.

I have even went as far as contacting Senator McBroom’s office. They have advised me that they would work on helping with my issue. As of this letter, Friday, May 29, 2020, my issue is still unresolved.

I’m nNot sure if our governor’s refusal to allow opening of hair salons is political. You will need to ask her that. But I do believe that there is no common sense behind some of her decisions. As far as her taking lessons from Trump, keep him out of her decisions because he would have the UIA offices open.
