AYER — U.S. Rep. Niki Tsongas has announced that she will be hosting her “Congress on Your Corner” program at 31 Main Street coffee shop and bakery on Saturday, April 12, from 10 a.m. to noon. The program is part of Tsongas’ constituent outreach service and offers the opportunity for Ayer residents to share their thoughts with Tsongas regarding legislation in Congress and happenings in their community, as well as to seek assistance with any problem they may be having with a federal agency.
“Accessibility and accountability to the families of the 5th District allows me to provide you with the best constituent services possible,” said Tsongas. “I want to make it as easy as possible for people to come see me and share their opinions, ideas, and talk about their needs.”
Tsongas will have congressional staff with her and will be available to discuss any issue or concern on the minds of Ayer residents. She will also be able to collect the appropriate information about an individual problem someone may have with a federal agency, so that her office can assist in helping to resolve the matter.
“My most important duty is to make sure that I remain in touch with and am easily accessible to the 5th District residents I represent,” Tsongas said. “I want to know how they feel about the bills Congress is considering, and I want to be able to connect with people to make sure they know of the many ways my office can help. This is just one of the ways we are able to make ourselves available and I look forward to meeting as many people as possible in Ayer on Saturday.”
