Congressman Hank Johnson is partnering with local city governments to provide Fourth District residents access to the services from the Congressman's office using local spaces.
The size of the district has expanded while the district office is centrally located in Lithonia. The district now reaches from Newton County to DeKalb and Rockdale and the distance from the outlying counties can be daunting for some constituents.
Instead of opening separate offices, Rep. Johnson worked with local mayors in Covington (Mayor Johnston), Snellville (Mayor Kautz), Conyers (Mayor Mills) and North DeKalb (CEO Ellis) to use existing meeting space in respective city halls.
Fourth District constituents can now call the Lithonia office at 770-987-2291 to make an appointment with a congressional office representative at the location of their choice. For residents of North DeKalb, meetings will continue to be arranged at the One DeKalb Office at Northlake Mall.
"I want to thank the respective mayors and the CEO for working with our office," said Johnson. "This way we can better serve our constituents by making services more accessible and also save taxpayer funds by holding down overhead costs. It's a win-win situation."
For more information or to make an appointment with a constituent representative, call 770-987-2291.
