Rep. Tonko's mobile office hours a hit with constituents

Clifton Park>>Rep. Paul Tonko presented the federal government in a personal way to his constituents by bringing his mobile office hours to the Clifton Park-Halfmoon Library last week.

Tonko, D-Amsterdam, represents southern Saratoga County, including the towns of Clifton Park and Halfmoon, in Washington, D.C. as part of the 20th Congressional District. Never one to hibernate in the nation’s Capital, Tonko spends nearly as much time on the ground in his district as he does in Washington.

Unlike press conferences or tours of local businesses, the mobile office hours give constituents a chance for one on one time, in a private setting, with their Congressional representative. Those who took advantage of the Feb. 19 opportunity appeared to enjoy it almost as much as Tonko.
