(WKBW release) New York Congressman Brian Higgins on Monday announced the February schedule for his Congress on Your Corner program in Erie County, which provides local residents with access to the Congressman’s office through satellite office hours at locations in the district.

“Our office is always here to help and listen but since traveling to our district office can be difficult for some, we come to neighborhoods across the county to make direct access easy and convenient for residents,” Higgins said in a news release.

Congress on Your Corner provides constituents the opportunity to talk directly with someone from Congressman Higgins’ office about issues related to Social Security, the Veteran’s Administration, passports, or other federal matters.  Residents are encouraged to visit a satellite site to share their concerns, questions, and ideas with a representative from Congressman Higgins’ office.

Over the last 6 years the Congressman’s office has made over 700 Congress on Your Corner stops.
