In the News Gottheimer debuting district office in Glen Rock

U.S. Rep. Josh Gottheimer is launching a second district office Sunday, not far from the suite utilized by his defeated predecessor.

Gottheimer, a Democrat representing the Fifth District, will hold an 11 a.m. ribbon-cutting ceremony outside his office at 65 Harristown Road, Suite 104.

The location is about a mile away from the Glen Rock office used by former Republican Rep. Scott Garrett.

Garrett, a seven-term incumbent from Wantage, was defeated Nov. 8 by Gottheimer in the costliest House race in state history.

Gottheimer, on Saturday morning, held an opening ceremony by his office in Newton — 93 Spring Street, Suite 408. It is a couple of doors over from where Garrett had an office in Newton.

As was the case with Garrett, the Glen Rock and Newton locations will be Gottheimer’s primary district offices.

Separately, Gottheimer is planning to open four “satellite offices” in Hackensack, Ringwood, Vernon and in Washington Borough, Warren County.

The office in Vernon will be one of six “constituent service centers.”

All four will utilize donated space in municipal buildings, Gottheimer said.

Gottheimer, asked about the satellite offices, said, “My goal is to bring government to people and make it easier for them to have access to what they need.”

“I hope they serve as a benefit to their residents,” he said.

The Fifth District includes parts of Bergen, Sussex, Warren and Passaic counties.

Gottheimer said his Glen Rock office will be open Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The Newton site will be open for the same hours on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, with staffers utilizing the satellite offices on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
