Congressman John Shimkus (R, Illinois-15) has a tradition of having his staff hold office hours in addition to those he holds himself. This is an opportunity to meet with someone from Shimkus’ office in your hometown.
“These office hours allow you to meet face to face with my staff instead of over the telephone or having to drive to Harrisburg,” Shimkus explained. “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 in Johnson County on Tuesday, Sept. 17, from 1:30 till 3:00 p.m. in the basement meeting room of Vienna City Hall, 205 North Fourth Street.
Those who cannot attend in person may contact Shimkus’ local office at City Hall Room 12, 110 East Locust Street, Harrisburg, IL 62946. The telephone number is (618)252-8271.
More information on services offered by the Congressman’s office is also available on his website: http://shimkus.house.gov. You may sign up for a weekly e-newsletter on the website in order to stay informed of the Congressman and issues from Washington, D.C. Shimkus also has Twitter and Facebook pages where information is shared daily.
Constituents requiring special accommodations should call at least 48 hours prior to the scheduled office hours.
