If you have business which requires assistance from the federal level of government you might want to mark your calendar for Tuesday, June 30. That’s when U.S. Senator Rob Portman’s (R-Ohio) staff will hold office hours in Scioto County. Staff members will be at the Portsmouth Public Library at 1220 Gallia St., from 11:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m.
Portman said during that time, constituents will have the opportunity to share their thoughts and concerns with a district representative who will provide their feedback to the senator.
“Keeping an open dialogue with constituents is a top priority for me and I encourage people to take advantage of the opportunity to talk to a member of my staff,” Portman said. “I’ve traveled to every county in the state and have found it helpful to hear about the issues that are of primary concern to Ohioans. Listening to constituents enables me to better determine how I can fight for their interests in Washington.”
Portman’s staff will travel to each county in Ohio to meet with constituents during office hours, connect with local elected officials, and attend community events.
He said no appointments are necessary.
