Gordon's field representative
U.S. Rep. Bart Gordon is sending his mobile congressional
office to Livingston on Thursday, June 5.
"My field representative Billy G. Smith will
be at the Overton County Senior Citizens Center at 9 a.m. to meet
with those who need help with the federal agency or who would like
to talk about their concerns," Gordon said. "This helps
me stay in touch with Overton County, and it makes it easier for
people to keep in touch with me.
"Since coming to Congress, I have worked hard
to ensure Middle Tennessee residents have a strong voice in their
government. My mobile congressional office is one more way for me
to find out what's on your mind and help those needing to cut through
government red tape. Helping is one of the most important parts
of my job. My staff and I will always do our best to assist you,"
the congressman added.
No appointment is necessary to meet with Gordon's
