U.S. Rep. Dan Lipinski (IL-3) announced today that he will be holding a grand opening on Friday, January 25 for a new 3rd Congressional District office at Central Square in Lockport. The congressman will be joined by other local officials for a ceremonial ribbon cutting at 11 a.m.
In keeping with the congressman's goal of locating his district offices in close proximity to local government offices, the Lockport office will be in the same building as the City of Lockport, Lockport Township, and the Lockport Township Park District, providing area residents with convenient access to all their elected officials and the services they provide.
"As an elected official who strives to be involved in the communities I represent, I am excited to open a new office in Lockport's historic downtown area," Lipinski said. "I am committed to being accessible to all my constituents and providing top-notch constituent services. My staff is ready to assist with various federal concerns, including issues with Social Security and Medicare, veterans' benefits, and helping arrange visits to Washington, D.C. I look forward to hearing about your challenges and ideas to improve the 3rd Congressional District. My door is always open."
The new office will be located on Central Square's first floor, 222 East 9th St., in Lockport. The hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. No appointments are necessary.
"I wish to extend a very warm welcome to Rep. Lipinski and his staff," said Lockport Mayor Dev Trivedi. "The congressman is an active member of our community and we are elated to have him as a neighbor in Central Square. I know our residents will be well served by his office. Welcome aboard, congressman."
The 3rd Congressional District includes parts of Chicago, southwest Cook County and northeastern Will County. Announcements of new district office locations, including mobile offices as an added convenience for constituents, will be made in the coming weeks.
