Congressman Brian Higgins (NY-26) announced a new schedule of Congress on Your Corner stops in Western New York for the month of August. Congress on Your Corner provides satellite office hours, at locations throughout the district, for residents to gain assistance with federal issues. “We work hard to be accessible and provide that link between the public and federal agencies,” said Congressman Higgins. “While we can always be reached through telephone, email and at the district offices, this program provides opportunities for residents to interact with the Congressional office at a location closer to home.”  Thursday, August 1st, 2013 – 9am-11amNorth Tonawanda City Hall216 Payne St. North Tonawanda NY 14120 Tuesday, August 6th, 2013 – 10:30am-noonJohn Duke Center1201 Hyde Park BoulevardNiagara Falls, NY 14301 Thursday, August 8th, 2013 – 11am-1pmCheektowaga Senior Center3349 Broadway StreetCheektowaga, NY 14227 Monday, August 12th, 2013 – 11am-1pmEllicott-Masten Family YMCA585 William StreetBuffalo, NY 14206 Thursday, August 15, 2013 – 9am-11amGrand Island Town Hall2255 Baseline Road, 2nd floor lobbyGrand Island, NY 14072 ‎ Tuesday, August 20th, 2013 – 10:30am-noonLaSalle Library8728 Buffalo AvenueNiagara Falls, NY 14304 Wednesday, August 21st, 2013 – 10:00am – noonNorth Buffalo Community Development Corp203 Sanders RoadBuffalo, NY 14216 ‎ During Congress on Your Corner, residents have the opportunity to talk directly with someone from Congressman Higgins’ office about issues related to Social Security, the Veteran’s Administration, passport issues, federal student loans, the Small Business Administration, or any other federal matters they may need assistance with. Residents are invited to reach Congressman Higgins’ office anytime by calling 716-852-3501 in Erie County or 716-282-1274 in Niagara County.
