Congressman Brian Higgins (NY-27) announced the September schedule for his Congress on Your Corner program, which provides local residents with access to the Congressman’s office through satellite office hours at locations in the district. Over 600 Congress on Your Corner events have been held over the last five years and another 135 outreach events are scheduled for 2011.

“Our office is always here to help and listen but since traveling to our office in Jamestown can be difficult for some, we come to neighborhoods across Chautauqua County to make direct access easy and convenient for residents,” said Congressman Higgins.

Congress on Your Corner provides constituents the opportunity to talk directly with someone from Congressman Higgins’ office about issues related to Social Security, the Veteran’s Administration, passports, or other federal matters. Residents are encouraged to visit a satellite site to share their concerns, questions, and ideas with a representative from Congressman Higgins’ office.
