LAYTON — Staffers from the office of U.S. Senator Mike Lee, R-Utah, will be visiting Layton and West Point on Wed., August 29 as part of a “Mobile Office” program designed to give constituents a chance to access their federal lawmaker.
The mobile office will be at Layton City Offices, 437 N. Wasatch Drive, from 10 a.m. until noon on Wednesday. The staffer representing Lee will then visit the West Point City offices, 3200 W. 300 North, from 1 to 3 p.m.
“Open access to elected officials is a fundamentally necessary part of our constitutional republic, and the Mobile Office greatly increases that access for the citizens of this state,” Lee said in a press release. “I look forward to once again sending the office to every county in Utah over the next six months.”
The residents of Utah interact with the federal government regularly regarding issues such as Medicare, social security and veteran’s benefits, Lee said, and he wants to give them answers.
“I want my office to be open and available to all Utahns,” he said. “The best way to achieve that is by going directly to them.
Lee, a Republican, was elected in November of 2010 for a six-year term. Along with Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch, he represents all Utah residents.
