It’s not uncommon for a congressional district office to not be located in Wayne or Pike counties.


It’s not uncommon for a congressional district office to not be located in Wayne or Pike counties.

The two previous legislators of the 10th Congressional District did not have offices in either county.

Since at least 1999, the closest district office for Wayne and Pike residents was in Clarks Summit in Lackawanna County.

Former Rep. Don Sherwood (R) had three office locations: Williamsport, Sunbury and Clarks Summit. Former Rep. Chris Carney (D) had two, in Williamsport and Clarks Summit. Both former congressmen also held satellite office hours in the areas where offices were not located.

And Congressman Tom Marino (R) plans to do the same.

“Just because we do not have a constituent service center in a county in the district, that does not mean that we will not be prepared to serve the residents of that county,” he said. “Every issue and concern raised by every constituent is a priority for me.”

Communications Director Renita Fennick said Congressman Marino would like to assure all of his constituents in the 10th District that their concerns are important to him which is why he plans to establish regular office hours in both Wayne and Pike counties.

“As soon as all three constituent service centers are up and running in the district, regular office hours in Wayne and Pike counties will be announced,” according to Dave Weber, district director for Congressman Marino.

The centers will be up and running within the next few weeks at:

• Williamsport Constituent Service Center 1020 Commerce Park Drive, Suite 1A, Williamsport, PA 17701.

• Tunkhannock Constituent Service Center 181 West Tioga Street, Suite 2 Tunkhannock, PA 18657.

• Sunbury Constituent Service Center 106 Arch Street Sunbury, PA 17801.

In the meantime, District Director Dave Weber said constituents may call the Washington, D.C., office at 202-225-3731.
