Corker Announces “Senate At Your Service” Events To Be Held Across Tennessee

Thursday, March 13, 2014
Senator Bob Corker announced Thursday that his staff will hold “Senate at Your Service” events at various locations across Tennessee in the coming months. Senator Corker’s staff will be on hand to meet with local residents and assist individuals experiencing problems with a federal agency. The events are free and open to all Tennesseans.

“Our office takes great pride in being able to help Tennesseans resolve issues involving federal agencies,” Senator Corker said. “By coming to Tennesseans directly, we hope these events will be a valuable resource for those who may not be able to visit one of our six field offices.”

Since being elected to office in 2007, Senator Corker has made access and assistance to his constituents a top priority. His office has responded to over two million letters from constituents and helped almost 24,000 individuals and families resolve issues with the federal government.
Senator Corker’s six state offices are located in Jonesborough, Knoxville, Chattanooga, Nashville, Jackson, and Memphis.

A complete list of currently scheduled Senate at Your Service events is below. Additional locations may be announced at a later date. Tennesseans with questions about the events should contact Senator Corker’s Chattanooga office at 423-756-2757.
