NORTH PLAINFEILD, NJ – Anyone who needs help dealing with the federal government can get a hand from Senator Cory Booker’s staff at North Plainfield's Vermeule Community Center from 1 to 3 p.m. Thursday. The center is at the corner of Greenbrook Road and Clinton Avenue.
The date and time were selected since so many parents will be taking the afternoon off to pick up their kids after the first day of school ends around noon. The thought was that it would be more convenient for working parents who might otherwise be unavailable on a weekday.
Staff will set up tables with information on services and programs available from the federal government, and answer any questions they can on site. If they are not able to answer during the mobile office hours they will take the issue back to Sen. Booker’s office for further assistance.
Booker’s staff holds these mobile offices around the state on a regular basis. Residents can get help on any issue related to the federal government, with many asking about the Affordable Care Act (popularly known as ObamaCare), immigration issues, Social Security, military benefits, IRS issues and more.
There is no need to register or sign up ahead of time, and residents of any community are welcome.
People who cannot attend can request assistance by calling Senator Booker’s office at (973) 639-8700 or sending a message to @corybooker on Twitter.
