Washington, D.C. – Today, Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet announced his Durango staff will be holding weekly telephone office hours this fall. Bennet and his team are committed to answering Coloradans’ questions, listening to their concerns, and helping them navigate federal agencies – including the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the Social Security Administration (SSA), and more.
“There’s no greater responsibility as Colorado’s senator than being responsive to the needs of Coloradans across our state. I’m pleased to announce that—even in these challenging and virtual times—our office is holding telephone listening sessions this fall in every region of Colorado,” said Bennet. “If you’re having issues navigating a federal agency or receiving benefits, or have any questions, comments, or concerns, I encourage you to schedule time to talk with our team.”
From Thursday, September 17 through Thursday, November 5, Janet Wolf, Bennet’s Constituent Advocate in Durango, will hold telephone office hours for Coloradans on Thursday mornings. Details are available below.
