Area officials will join U.S. Rep. Dan Lipinski (IL-3) at a ceremonial ribbon cutting for his new Third Congressional District office at 11 a.m. Friday. The new office will be located on the first floor of Central Square at 222 East 9th St. in Lockport. The hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. No appointments are necessary.
In keeping with the congressman’s goal of locating his district offices in close proximity to local government offices, the Lockport office will be in the same building as the City of Lockport, Lockport Township, and the Lockport Township Park District.
“As an elected official who strives to be involved in the communities I represent, I am excited to open a new office in Lockport’s historic downtown area,” Lipinski said. “I am committed to being accessible to all my constituents and providing top-notch constituent services. My staff is ready to assist with various federal concerns, including issues with Social Security and Medicare, veterans’ benefits, and helping arrange visits to Washington, D.C. I look forward to hearing about your challenges and ideas to improve the Third Congressional District. My door is always open.”
The Third Congressional District includes parts of Chicago, southwest Cook County (including Lemont) and northeastern Will County. Announcements of new district office locations, including mobile offices as an added convenience for constituents, will be made in the coming weeks.
