Middletown, NY…State Senator Jen Metzger today announced the dates and times in August that her constituent services staff will hold mobile office hours at farmers’ markets in Middletown (Orange County), Monticello and Callicoon (Sullivan County), and New Paltz (Ulster County).
During mobile office hours constituents can meet with the Senator’s constituent services staff to ask questions, share ideas, discuss local or legislative issues or seek assistance in working with a state agency.
“Farmers’ markets are a cherished gathering place for our rural communities and a wonderful way for us to do our part in supporting our local farmers and food producers,” said Senator Metzger who chairs the Senate Agriculture Committee. “This summer, many farmers’ markets across the 42nd Senate District have kindly let us set up shop to deliver mobile office hours, including farmers’ markets in Delhi, Walton, Barryville, and Rosendale. August is fast approaching and we’re excited to extend the reach of our constituent services to more of our wonderful farmers’ markets and the community members frequenting them.”
In addition to mobile office hours at local farmers’ markets, the Senator’s staff hold monthly mobile office hours in Delhi, Ellenville, New Paltz, Port Jervis, and Roscoe.
