MT. BETHEL – State Rep. Joe Emrick (R-Nazareth) and his staff will ring in 2018 by opening a new Slate Belt district office at 447 Blue Valley Drive, Bangor, next to the Capitol Plaza. The first day of business in the new location will be Tuesday, Jan. 2, starting at 9 a.m.

“Our first and foremost goal is to serve residents of the 137th Legislative District in the most efficient and effective manner possible,” Emrick said. “This new Slate Belt office location is being opened with you, the constituent, in mind.

According to Emrick, there are a number of reasons for relocating from the current location in the Mt. Bethel Plaza.

“Protecting constituents’ privacy has long been a serious concern at our current location,” he said. “That will not be the case at the Blue Valley Drive office.
“The new office is compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act and offers plenty of parking, as well as a conference room that can accommodate both large and small group meetings.”

Also making the new location more attractive is a higher volume of traffic on this portion of Route 512, making it more accessible to a greater number of people.
“While we are changing office locations, there will be NO change in the level of quality and personal service we deliver to the taxpayers for whom we work,” he added. “We look forward to continuing to serve residents of the Slate Belt.”

The last day at the Mt. Bethel Highway location will be Friday, Dec. 29.

Questions about this or any legislative issue should be directed to Emrick’s district office at (610) 746-5090 or (570) 897-0401.
