How long should I wait before contacting my Congressman?

I submitted my SF-86 for a TS PR last July. I had my interview a couple months later. I contacted my FSO this week and she said there is no change in my status in JPAS. I believe it said investigation still open which means it hasn’t gone to adjudication yet.

It’s been one year. How long should I wait to contact my Congressman? Is that the right person to call? What should I say to them?

It’s a reinvestigation, why do you care? You’re still working, right?
