GREENVILLE — U.S. Rep. Don Davis hosted the grand opening of his district office at 1710 E. Arlington Blvd., Suite A, on Saturday.
The office will serve constituents in North Carolina’s 1st Congressional District by providing federal government casework assistance and as a direct link for residents in eastern North Carolina to make their voices heard in the House of Representatives, Davis’ staff said in a news release.
“I’m honored to open North Carolina’s 1st Congressional District office in Greenville,” Davis said. “We will carry out effective constituent casework and go to work for our families, farmers, military families, seniors and all constituents as they navigate federal agencies and access federal funds. Accessibility is essential, and we recognize not everyone we serve lives in close proximity to our district office, which is why we are bringing our services directly to our constituents through our mobile office hours program.”
For the week of May 15, Davis’ team will reach the remaining 18 counties in his district in three days to meet constituents where they are — answering questions and addressing specific needs constituents may have relating to federal agencies, including Veterans Affairs, Social Security and the Internal Revenue Service.
Examples of what constituents can get help with include but are not limited to tracking down misdirected benefit payments; filling out a government form; applying for Social Security, veterans’, education, or other federal benefits; applying to a military service academy; and applying for U.S. citizenship.
Residents of the 1st District also can contact the office if they are waiting for a timely or fair response from a federal agency.
“Although the office cannot guarantee a favorable outcome, the team will always strive to help constituents receive a just, fair and timely response,” Davis’ news release says.
The congressman’s Greenville district office at 1710 E. Arlington Blvd., Suite A, is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and can be reached by calling 252-999-7600.
