Lehigh Valley Live: Warren County congressman says he’s $2K-a-month cheaper than Garrett

The new congressman serving New Jersey’s 5th Congressional District announced the locations of his district offices Wednesday, and says the rent is more than $2,000 a month cheaper compared to his predecessor.

U.S. Rep. Josh Gottheimer, a Democrat whose district covers part of Warren County, bested seven-term Republican incumbent Scott Garrett in 2016.

“Gottheimer will operate two flagship constituent service centers in Newton and Glen Rock, as well as four satellite offices in Hackensack, Ringwood, Vernon and Washington Borough,” his office said in a news release Wednesday. “Every resident in the district will have the chance to meet with the congressman or a member of his staff in their respective county on a regular basis.”

The Newton office will be at 93 Spring St., Suite 408, and the Glen Rock office will be located at 65 Harristown Road, Suite 104.

The Satellite Constituent Service Centers will be located in the municipal buildings of Hackensack at 65 Central Ave., Ringwood at 60 Margaret King Ave., Vernon at 21 Church St. and Washington at 100 Belvidere Ave. These offices can be reached by calling 973-814-4076.

Official openings and hours of operation will be announced later, the release states.

Gottheimer encourages district residents to contact these offices for assistance navigating the federal government, on issues including veterans’ benefits, Social Security, Medicare, visas and passports, taxes, health care and federal grant applications.

The congressman is among those ensuring the Lehigh Valley region is well-represented at Donald Trump’s swearing-in.

“Saving taxpayers money and being responsive to the people of northern New Jersey are two of my top priorities, and that’s why I’m proud to announce these cost-effective office locations where constituents will be connected to valuable resources and experienced advocates,” Gottheimer said in a statement. “I encourage anyone in need of help or wishing to get in touch to visit these constituent service centers. My staff and I look forward to serving you.”
