NJ Herald: Gottheimer completes tour of 79 towns
By: Staff

HOPE — Congressman Josh Gottheimer (D-5th) announced that, as part of his listening tour of local officials, residents and businesses, he and his staff had visited all of the Fifth Congressional District’s 79 towns in his first six months in office.

Gottheimer visited his final two towns Monday, with a meeting with Liberty Township’s Mountain Lakes Community Association and a tour of Hope Township’s historic downtown.

“Visits like today’s tour of downtown Hope — where I get to meet with constituents and business owners in their hometowns and hear their needs — are a critical part of my job representing North Jersey and getting us a better return on our federal investment,” Gottheimer said in a prepared news release.

“I’m proud to say that I’ve heard from people in every corner of the Fifth District; from Alpine to Belvidere and Montague, my staff and I have announced grant funding opportunities, joined fishing derbies and strawberry festivals, stood up and celebrated America’s veterans and first responders, and hosted many mobile office hours.”

Gottheimer was elected on Nov. 8, 2016, defeating incumbent congressman Scott Garrett, and assumed office on Jan. 3, 2017.
