– To help residents of Sullivan County better access state government-related services, Rep. Tina Pickett (R-Bradford/Sullivan/Susquehanna) will hold satellite office hours on the first and thirds Wednesdays of the month in Sullivan County.
Susquehanna County residents who may need assistance are always encouraged to call Pickett’s staff at (570) 934-2557 anytime during regular business hours.
Staff will be available in Sullivan County in the commissioners’ conference room at the courthouse from 1:30-3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 5, and Wednesday, Sept. 19.
“Traveling to Towanda or Sayre – the location of my two full-time offices – can be inconvenient for residents who live in the eastern part of the district, and that is why I make sure satellite office hours are scheduled to help make state government resources a bit easier for them,” Pickett said.
In addition to state-related inquiries, staff can help with such items as Property Tax/Rent Rebate or PACE/PACENET applications. The staff also will have available common brochures on state programs and services.
At the Sayre district office, Dan Falls from the American Legion can help veterans navigate the complexities of government programs and services designed for them. Specifically, he can help veterans and their family members with compensation, pension, death benefits, education and health care, as well as any issues pertaining to benefits.
Falls will be at the Sayre office on Thursday, Sept. 20, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. 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 W. Packer Ave., Sayre
, phone (570) 888-9011. More information is available 24 hours a day on Pickett’s website at RepPickett.com
or on her Facebook page at Facebook.com/RepPickett
