Tina Pickett announces office hours for the month of January


TOWANDA — Rep. Tina Pickett (R-Bradford/Sullivan/Susquehanna) encourages residents of Sullivan and Susquehanna counties who live in the 110th District to visit either of her satellite locations in January if they are in need of state government-related assistance.

“The winter weather along the Northern Tier can make traveling into my full-time office in Bradford County rather challenging, so I bring my office to Lawton and Laporte twice a month for added convenience,” Pickett said. “Residents can stop by or call us if they are in need of various paperwork or applications, have a question about state services or need help sorting through red tape.”

For the remainder of January, staff will be available from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. on the third Wednesday, Jan. 18, at the Sullivan County Commissioners’ office in the courthouse, and from 10 a.m. to noon on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month, Jan. 11 and Jan. 25, at Heft’s Buy and Sell in Lawton.

To help veterans navigate the complexities of government programs and services designed specifically for them, Dan Falls from the American Legion will be meeting with veterans and/or their family members from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 19.

Falls can help veterans and their family members with compensation, pension, death benefits, education and health care, as well as any issues pertaining to benefits. Veterans do not need to be a member of the American Legion to receive these services, and appointments can be made by calling Pickett’s Sayre office at (570) 888-9011.

Pickett’s full-time offices are located at 321 Main St., Towanda, phone (570) 265-3124, and 106 West Packer Ave., Sayre, phone (570) 888-9011. More information is available 24 hours a day on Pickett’s website at www.RepPickett.com or on her Facebook page at www.Facebook.com/RepPickett. Residents can also sign up via her website to receive a weekly email about local and state activities.
