Congressman Broun's staff visit Powell Building Friday

MILLEDGEVILLE — A field representative from the office of U.S. Congressman Paul Broun (GA-10) will be on hand Friday as part of Broun’s Constituent Service Days held throughout Georgia's newly drawn 10th Congressional District. 

Starting this week, the meetings will take place in 13 counties and serve as an opportunity for people to ask questions to see what services the congressman's office may provide.

Broun said via press release that the meetings could help his staff understand the issues at hand.

Baldwin County's session runs from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. Friday. Central State Hospital's Powell Building located at 620 Broad St., Suite 401-C serves as the host space.

Central State Hospital Local Redevelopment Authority (CSHLRA) Executive Director Mike Couch said having the U.S. District 10 representative's staff hold the meeting at CSH shows the commitment to the project.

Having a champion in Washington, D.C. means everything to the future development district-wide and specifically the CSHLRA's need for federal assistance to make plans into reality.

Broun's outreach director Jessica Hayes said the congressman's staff could look into a variety of federal government issues.

Citizens can drop in during the three-hour span. There are no specific programs or presentations.

Hayes urges anyone curious about a personal governmental issue to come by.

“Now that we have a newly drawn district, he [Broun] wants to get to know the residents,” Hayes said. “We want to go into these communities and let residents know that we are here to serve them. We are looking forward to seeing where the need is and what we can do to help.” 

Throughout the year, Broun will host Constituent Service Days in local communities. For more information, call the Athens District Office at (706) 549-9588, or visit
