“The mobile offices have been used by the congressman since he was elected to get feedback from constituents, as well as bring the office to them at their own location,”said Roe,”We use these opportunities to talk with people who might be needing assistance with social security, a veterans concern or any other issue.  This provides them the chance to sit one on one and talk with a staff member.”
