Congressman Brian Higgins (NY-27) released the March schedule for his Chautauqua County “Congress On Your Corner” program, which offers regular satellite hours in an effort to better serve local residents. In 2008 alone Congressman Higgins’ office will host over 140 “Congress on Your Corner” events at locations across Chautauqua County.
“Sometimes it may be difficult for our constituents to come to our office, so my staff will travel to neighborhoods across the 27th district to take our services directly to the people,” said Congressman Higgins. Constituents have the opportunity to talk directly with someone from Congressman Higgins’ office about issues related to Social Security, the Veteran’s Administration, citizenship and immigration, or any other matters they may need assistance with.
