Rep. Graves Announces Transition To 14th Congressional District; To Retain Dalton Office

Monday, December 31, 2012
With the 113th United States Congress set to convene on Thursday, U.S. Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA) today announced the Congressional office information for Georgia’s 14th Congressional District.

“Constituent service is the top priority of my Congressional offices, and I am confident that our three locations will provide the exceptional assistance that Georgians in the 14th district expect and deserve,” said Rep. Graves. “Whether it’s a comment on pending legislation or help with a federal agency, my staff and I are prepared to assist constituents with any federal issue.


When the 113th Congress begins on January 3, Rep. Graves will transition from representing the 9th Congressional District to the new 14th Congressional District. As a result, the Dalton office location and contact information will remain the same, while the Gainesville office will be closed and replaced with an office in Rome.

To make the transition seamless for constituents in the southern portion of the 14th district, Rep. Graves chose to maintain the same Rome office and contact information used by Rep. Phil Gingrey. As part of the transition, the Rome office will undergo maintenance starting January 3. Rep. Graves’ staff will work in a temporary space in the same building, 600 E. First Street, until the move is complete.

Additionally, the Washington, DC, office has moved to room 432 of the Cannon House Office Building. The larger office provides additional meeting space for constituents.
