Duckworth Hosts Mobile Office Hours in Bourbonnais and Pontiac


[BOURBONNAIS, IL] – The Office of U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) today hosted “Mobile Office Hours” in Bourbonnais and Pontiac, where her constituent service representatives were on hand to assist Illinoisans with receiving Veterans Affairs, Social Security, Medicare and other federal benefits. Additional Mobile Office Hours will take place in communities throughout the state over the coming months to offer constituents who may not be able to drive to one of the Senator’s offices an opportunity to meet with her staff closer to home. Photos from today’s events can be found here.

“Reaching as many Illinoisans as possible and talking about their concerns is one of my top priorities as Senator, and making my team available in every corner of the state helps,” Duckworth said. “These Mobile Office Hours in Bourbonnais and Pontiac gave hardworking families opportunities to meet my staff, learn about federal resources available to them, cut through red tape and get the timely replies they deserve. My staff looks forward to hosting additional mobile office hours across Illinois in the days, weeks and months ahead.”

At Duckworth’s Mobile Office Hours, constituents can also learn about the federal grant application process, service academy nominations and internship opportunities. Senator Duckworth has five offices across the state with locations in Chicago, Springfield, Carbondale, Rock Island and Belleville.
