Washington Borough Opening

Washington Borough, N.J. — Yesterday, Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) joined local community leaders and Fifth District residents to cut the ribbon and officially open his District Office and Constituent Service Center in Washington Borough. Gottheimer shared his vision for the community with attendees, discussing cutting taxes, investing in infrastructure projects, standing by first responders, and getting residents a better return on their federal tax dollar investment. Attendees included Washington Borough Mayor Dave Higgins, Allamuchy Township Mayor Keith DeTombeur, Belvidere Mayor Joseph Kennedy, Freeholder Director Jason Sarnoski, Freeholder Deputy Director Richard Gardner, Washington Borough Councilwoman Josephine Noone, and Oxford Township Committeeman Bill Ryan.  

At this office, trained constituent service representatives and caseworkers will provide assistance on issues including veterans’ benefits, Social Security and Medicare issues, health care issues, infrastructure, and federal grant applications so we can get back more of the federal taxpayer dollars we send to Washington, DC. 

“Being responsive to and making the federal government work for the people of the Fifth District is my top priority, whether it’s helping a veteran with their benefits, a senior with their Social Security, or fixing a pothole,” said Congressman Josh Gottheimer. “I urge anyone in need of assistance to reach out to me or my team in my new Washington Borough office. We are honored to serve you.”

Gottheimer is saving taxpayers $2,000 a month in office rent compared to his predecessor. He will also have offices in Glen Rock, Newton, Vernon, Hackensack, and Ringwood.
