Senator Mensch Offers Outeach Program and Upgraded Website

Harrisburg – Senator Bob Mensch recently upgraded his website which serves constituents of the 24th Senatorial District.  The website, www.senatormensch.com, was reworked to make it easier read and navigate, so constituents can find the information they need more quickly. The site features information on the latest legislative news, links to bills and General Assembly votes, and a wide array of easy-to-access state forms and constituent services.

In addition, Senator Bob Mensch is offering office hours across the 24th Senate District.  As part of his commitment to make state services readily accessible to his constituents, Senator Mensch’s extensive outreach program involves regularly scheduled visits by staff members to assist constituents in their hometowns throughout the 24th Senatorial District.

“During these tough economic times, it is essential that government agencies continue to find ways to reduce costs.  Utilizing public libraries, municipal buildings and community centers, we have been able to expand our services and make ourselves more readily available to residents.”  Senator Mensch kindly asks constituents to call before visiting the district offices since inclement weather may alter the hours.
