DeLissio’s legislative office focused on service

PHILADELPHIA, June 1 – State Rep. Pamela A. DeLissio, D-Montgomery/Phila., reminds constituents of the 194th Legislative District of the important services her district office provides to the community.

“My role as your state representative is to ensure that constituents of the 194th are represented in the lawmaking process in Harrisburg,” DeLissio said. “The laws that are passed – or not passed – affect our everyday lives. The lawmaking process may appear straightforward but in reality the process can take many twists and turns, and I am as vigilant as possible to ensure that the interests of the 194th are well represented.

"While my focus is on being the best legislator I can be, my district staff strive to be the best at delivering constituent services. We strive to provide a welcoming, informative, and pleasant experience to help constituents with Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program applications, birth and death certificates, PennDOT forms, SEPTA Key ID photos and checking for unclaimed property through the Pennsylvania Department of Treasury, along with other services.

“For example, my office interacts with the state Department of Human Services (DHS) regularly.  We work closely with the County Assistance Offices that serve the 194th to facilitate communication and the documentation required to participate in the programs administered by DHS. Some of our most satisfying work is when we can resolve complex issues and ensure that children’s needs are being met.”

DeLissio added, "If there is a matter related to local or federal government, we will make the necessary referral to the appropriate city, township or federal office. We work closely with other agencies throughout the state, to ensure our constituents receive proper service.”

DeLissio’s district office is located at 6511 Ridge Ave. with office hours from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m, Monday through Friday, and by appointment in the evenings and on weekends. The office is at the epicenter of the district, no more than about three miles from any district border, with plenty of free parking. It is served by the 9 and 35 SEPTA bus routes.
