Congressman John Shimkus (R, Illinois-15) has a tradition of having his staff hold office hours in addition to those he holds himself. This is an opportunity to meet with someone from Shimkus’ office in your hometown.
“These office hours allow you to meet face to face with my staff instead of over the telephone or having to drive to Effingham,” Shimkus explained. “The staff person will be able to handle any issue you may have regarding my office or the federal government.”
A member of Shimkus’ staff will be in Coles County on Wednesday, February 24, from 1 – 2:30 p.m. on the 2nd Floor of Mattoon City Hall, 208 N. 19th St.. Those who cannot attend in person may contact Shimkus’ local office at (217) 347-7947.
More information on services offered by the Congressman’s office is also available on his website: shimkus.house.gov. There you can sign up for a weekly email newsletter, periodic veterans and grant notice email newsletters, and send a message to the Congressman on the website. Shimkus also maintains Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube accounts, where regular updates are posted.
Constituents requiring special accommodations should call at least 48 hours prior to the scheduled office hours.
