MARYVILLE — U.S. Rep. John Shimkus (R-Illinois) has a tradition of having his staff hold office hours in addition to those he holds himself.
This is an opportunity for constituents to meet with someone from Shimkus’ office in their hometown.
“These office hours allow you to meet face to face with my staff instead of over the telephone or having to drive to Maryville,” Shimkus said. “The staff person will be able to handle any issue you may have regarding my office or the federal government.”
A member of Shimkus’ staff will be at the Hamel Village Hall, 111 South Old Route 66, from 9:30 to 11 a.m. Thursday, July 17.
Those who cannot attend in person may contact Shimkus’ local office at 15 Professional Park Drive, Maryville, IL 62062; (618) 288-7190.
More information on services offered by Shimkus’ office is also available on his website: www.shimkus.house.gov. On the website you may sign up for a weekly e-mail newsletter or send a message to the congressman. Shimkus also maintains Facebook, Twitter and You Tube (@RepShimkus) accounts, where regular updates are posted.
Constituents requiring special accommodations should call at least 48 hours prior to the scheduled office hours.
