LAKELAND, FL- Rep. Dennis A. Ross announced today his staff would begin conducting satellite office hours this March.  The satellite hours will be held on a monthly basis in various locations throughout Congressional District 12. 

Upon announcing these hours, Congressman Ross said, “With our Lakeland district office located in the geographic center of the district, we want to be certain we are making our services easily accessible to all constituents in District 12.  Navigating the bureaucracy of the federal government is never easy and I am hopeful anyone who needs assistance will take advantage of the resources our office offers."

Constituents will be able to meet with caseworkers from Ross’ staff in the location they find most convenient.  Privacy authorization forms will be available to those seeking assistance with an issue involving a federal agency.
