Sinema staffers to hold 'mobile office hours' in Tucson
U.S. Sen. Kyrsten Sinema may not yet have a Tucson office, but caseworkers on her staff will meet with constituents at the Main Library on Wednesday afternoon.
Staffers for the Democratic senator will be at the Joel D. Valdez Main Library, 101 N. Stone Ave., from 1:30-3 p.m., her spokeswoman said.
"Sinema's Arizona office operates with a full team of experienced caseworkers trained to help Arizonans on issues relating to federal agencies that include the Department of Veterans Affairs, Social Security, Medicare, small business concerns, student loans, military benefits, IRS and tax issues, and passport and visa inquiries," spokeswoman Hannah Hurley said in a news release. "Sinema's Arizona caseworkers can be reached at 602-598-7327."
Sinema's staff plans to hold additional "mobile office hours" in Tucson on June 12 at the George Miller-Golf Links Library, 9640 E. Golf Links Rd., and again at the Main Library in Downtown on June 26, according to her office website.
While U.S. Sen. Martha McSally, the Republican appointed to office after losing the November general election to Sinema, has set up a local Senate office in addition to one in Phoenix, the Democrat has not yet done so. McSally's office, at 407 W. Congress St., was formerly occupied by U.S. Sen. John McCain's staff in Southern Arizona, as well as McCain's short-term replacement, Sen. Jon Kyl.
U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake, whose seat was won by Sinema after he did not seek another term, had offices on North Oracle Road in the Tucson area, as well as in Phoenix.
Sinema's staff did not respond to queries about when the senator might establish a Tucson office.
