To help constituents better access state government-related services, Rep. Tina Pickett (Bradford/Sullivan/Susquehanna) will hold satellite office hours on the first and thirds Wednesdays of the month in Sullivan County.
Staff will be available in Sullivan County in the commissioners’ conference room at the courthouse from 1:30-3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 1, and Wednesday, May 15.
“State government is involved in many facets of people’s lives – from helping with home heating assistance to student aid for higher education, and especially services for our dedicated veterans,” Pickett said. “My staff is highly experienced to assist constituents with a wide range of programs and services, or even just getting people pointed in the right direction. We’re here to help.”
Sullivan and Susquehanna County residents who may need assistance are always encouraged to call Pickett’s staff at their new toll-free number, 1-855-271-9387, anytime during regular business hours.
At the Sayre district office, there will be an American legion service officer on Friday, May 17, by appointment only, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The assigned service officer can help veterans navigate the complexities of government programs and services designed for them.
Specifically, they 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, toll-free phone number 1-855-271-9387, and 106 West Packer Ave., Sayre, phone 570-888-9011.
