Local oil spill advocate still waiting for claims check~WVUE
~Kindra Arnesen is an outspoken advocate for oil spill victims and she’s also one of thousands of people who filed a claim with the Gulf Coast Claims Facility for a restaurant she owns that was forced closed by the spill.
“I brought all my tax papers in, everything from the three years, I brought them three, not two, and they didn't give me a reason. I just got a letter of denial in the mail three weeks after I submitted my claim,” Arnesen explains.
