HAMBURG – State Senator David G. Argall (R-29) and Representative Jerry Knowles (R-124) today invited local residents to their Berks County District Office for an Open House on Thursday, October 29 between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m.
The office, located in Hamburg’s Borough Hall, 61 North Third Street, offers constituents from northern Berks and southern Schuylkill counties easy access to the state legislators.
Argall said that their shared district office offers a wealth of information on valuable state resources, including property tax and rent rebate applications, PACE applications, higher education grant applications, copies of maps, absentee ballot applications, voter registration forms, state brochures and public service information, state ID cards, renewal applications for vehicle and license registrations and other PENNDOT paperwork. The district offices also provide information and updates on legislation, as well as copies of state laws and pending legislation.
“Constituent service has been one of my top priorities as a legislator in both the House and Senate and this office, which I previously shared with the late Senator Jim Rhoades, will allow me to continue serving local residents,” Argall said. “I am pleased that Representative Knowles has decided to join me in sharing this office.”
“The downtown location of this office will continue to make services more accessible for many local residents,” said Argall, who authored the Downtown Location Law in 2000 that encouraged state agencies to locate facilities in downtown areas.
In addition to the Hamburg office, Argall has district offices in Mahanoy City and Pottsville and shared offices in Tamaqua and Orwigsburg with Rep. Jerry Knowles, Saylorsburg with Sen. Pat Browne and Slatington with Rep. Julie Harhart, as a means of reducing costs. Argall also maintains a virtual district office on his website at senatorargall.com.
Constituents are encouraged to contact the Hamburg office by calling (610) 562-3411, via fax at (610) 562-6895, or by emailing the senator at email@example.com.
