District Satellite Office continues at Bridgeton Library

South Jersey Times – Senate President Steve Sweeney, Assembly Deputy Speaker John Burzichelli, and Assemblyman Adam Taliaferro encourage Third Legislative District residents to visit the district’s satellite office location at the Bridgeton Public Library, 150 E. Commerce Street on Tuesday, Feb. 7 from 3 to 5 p.m.

“We are pleased to continue hosting a permanent satellite office at the Bridgeton Public Library, which is an important place of learning and activity within the city,” said Sweeney. “Many of our residents seek assistance through our office in communicating with a state department or in regards to pending state legislation.”

The satellite office is hosted by experienced constituent services staff members who are available to assist residents with issues such as unemployment claim difficulties, energy assistance programs, notary public application certification, consumer complaints, or any matter with a state agency.

“We recommend residents stop by our Bridgeton satellite office, whether they have concerns about a personal matter before a state department or would like to convey their thoughts or comments about legislation,” added Burzichelli. “Our permanent satellite location makes our office’s services more accessible to residents of Bridgeton and the surrounding area.”

“We regularly strive to enhance access and communication with our residents through our traveling offices,” said Taliaferro. “We hope residents stop by during the scheduled hours for a brief visit to learn more about our office and the services it provides.”

The visit will highlight consumer resources, including information on energy assistance programs. In addition, residents may learn more about the Temporary Relief of Utility Expense (TRUE) and Payment Assistance for Gas and Electric (PAGE) programs. The Third Legislative District is a qualified intake location for applications.

The satellite office will continue at the Bridgeton Public Library on the first Tuesday of each month and will be held again on March 7 and April 4.

Constituent Corner-                      Code Blue Programs Assist Residents in Need of Shelter

The Code Blue Initiative is designed to provide shelter for homeless individuals and residents without sufficient accommodations when temperatures drop below freezing. The Code Blue Season runs from November 1st through April 15th, with designated “warming centers” operating between 6:00 pm and 6:00 am.
When a Code Blue alert is issued, volunteers collaborate with police, emergency medical services, the County Health Department and Human Services, and the state Office of Emergency Management to prepare warming centers and identify individuals who may be in need of shelter.
