FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
State Rep. Frank Dermody
Constituent services will stay intact for 50th District residents
HARRISBURG, April 25 – House Democratic Leader Frank Dermody, D-Allegheny, said the current 50th District constituent service offices in Waynesburg and Hiller will continue to provide help with state-related matters.
Following the resignation of former Rep. Bill DeWeese, Dermody said that satellite offices in Fredericktown and Masontown will be closed. The remaining two offices will stay open with normal office hours to serve area residents.
The Waynesburg office is at 141 E. High St. and the phone number is 724-627-8683. The Hiller office is at 900 First St. in Hiller and the phone is 724-785-8477.
In addition, Dermody said outreach sessions will likely be held to bring services to several other communities around the district on a rotating basis. Schedule details will be announced later.
A new representative who is elected later this year will determine future office arrangements upon taking office.
In the meantime, residents of the 50th Legislative District are welcome to call or visit the Waynesburg or Hiller offices for a wide variety of services, including help with PennDOT paperwork, Property Tax and Rent Rebates, PHEAA student loan applications, and problems with unemployment compensation, food stamps or Medical Assistance.
Dermody said people who lack a current photo identification also can talk to office staff about completing the steps needed to get an I.D. for purposes of voting.
All Pennsylvania legislators maintain district offices. Dermody said the House leadership wants to ensure that 50th District residents continue to have a point of contact for state concerns in the absence of an elected representative. He said the large size of the district warrants keeping two offices for the time being.
