U.S. Rep. Sharice Davids’ new Wyandotte County District Office will open on Thursday, March 21, according to an announcement today.
Rep. Davids, D-3rd Dist., and her staff will mark the occasion with an open house from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. March 20 to welcome residents to the new space.
The Wyandotte County office will be located in downtown Kansas City, Kansas, at the Brotherhood Bank Building at 7th and Minnesota, and will be accessible by public transportation, with a bus stop directly across the street. The office address is 753 State Ave., Suite 460.
“My team and I are committed to being active and engaged in the Wyandotte community and this office is a big part of our effort to be as accessible as possible to our constituents here,” Rep. Davids said in a news release. “All corners of this district deserve to be heard and I hope the people of Wyandotte County will consider this office a resource.”
There has not been a Congressional office in Wyandotte County since U.S. Rep. Dennis Moore retired in 2010. Davids promised on her campaign that she would re-open a district office in the county so that constituents would have easier access to services.
Rep. Davids already has an office in Overland Park. In addition, her staff holds “pop-up offices” across the district, from Spring Hill to Lenexa.
“My top priority will always be serving the people of Kansas’ Third District and making sure the government is working for them,” Rep. Davids said. “My staff and I work diligently to help constituents cut through red tape and get responses and resolutions to issues they face.”
Staff at Rep. Davids’ offices will help constituents of the Third Congressional District navigate the federal government. For example, staff may be able to help with backlogged veterans’ benefits, Social Security and Medicare issues, stalled tax refunds, passport issues, and more. Examples of federal agencies the office will work with include the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the Small Business Administration (SBA), The Department of Defense (DOD), and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
Doors will be open in the Wyandotte County office from noon to 6 p.m., Mondays through Fridays, starting March 21.
Phones in the Wyandotte County office will be answered from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. The office phone number is 913-766-3993.
