Gillen’s District Office, Website and Facebook Page
Are Up and Running to Serve Constituents
READING – While he won’t be officially sworn into office until January, Rep.-elect Mark Gillen (R-Berks) on Wednesday launched his legislative website and Facebook page and opened the doors of his district office to serve the constituents in the 128th Legislative District.
“We’re here to provide the high quality constituent services that local residents have come to expect,” Gillen said.
Gillen on Wednesday officially took control of the district office formerly operated by outgoing Rep. Sam Rohrer. Gillen plans to keep the office at its current location, 29 Village Center Drive, Suite A-7, in Reading. The phone number will remain 610-775-5130.
“I really have to thank Sam Rohrer for making the transition as seamless as possible,” Gillen said. “Sam built a strong reputation for providing good constituent services and I look to carry on that tradition.”
Gillen’s district office will continue to provide residents with access to the following:
· Information about legislation.
· Driver’s license and vehicle registration applications and renewals.
· Assistance with PennDOT paperwork (lost cards, changes, corrections, special registration plates, vanity plates, and temporary placards for disabled persons).
· PACE and PACENET applications for seniors.
· Property Tax and Rent Rebate applications.
· Voter registration forms and absentee ballot applications.
· State tax forms.
· Student aid applications.
· Referrals to agencies to resolve state-related matters.
Residents also can access state forms and other information on Gillen’s legislative website, RepGillen.com, which also was launched on Wednesday. There is a link on Gillen’s website where constituents also can follow him on the social network Facebook.
“My goal has been to hit the ground running in this job,” Gillen said. “The people who elected me to serve them deserve no less.”
