Senator Kerry’s staff to hold office hours in Carlisle on Monday

Members of U.S. Senator John Kerry’s staff will be holding office hours in Carlisle on Monday, April 13, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Heald Room at Town Hall. His staff will be holding office hours in communities across the state throughout the coming months to give constituents a chance to voice their concerns or get help with specific issues. No appointment is necessary.

Members of the community are all urged to drop by if they are having problems with federal agencies or unsure whether they are eligible for federal assistance programs, grants or loans. In many cases, Kerry’s staff may be able to expedite the bureaucratic process and bring attention to individual cases that may have fallen through the cracks. Staff will also be available to discuss federal legislation and local issues and concerns.

Additional office hours in cities and towns will be scheduled in the coming months. Check for upcoming dates. ∆
