Cherokee Village Police Chief Rickey Crook visits with District 1 Rep. Rick Crawford's representative Doug Smith on Sept. 21 at Cherokee Village City Hall where the congressman's mobile unit made a stop to visit constituents in his district.
Representatives from first Congressional District U.S. Representative Rick Crawford's office were in Cherokee Village Sept. 21 to meet with citizens who had concerns or things the congressman could help with.

The mobile office is something Crawford recently implemented.

Doug Smith, Tammy Davenport and Andrea Allen were present to discuss such topics as veteran's affairs, Medicare and Social Security with residents.

Allen said, "Having office hours in cities across the First District allows constituents, who do not live near one of Congressman Crawford's three permanent congressional offices in the First District, an opportunity to visit with members of his staff about any difficulties they may be having with government agencies or share their views about issues before Congress."

"Congressman Crawford wants to hear from and be accessible to those he serves in Arkansas' First District and the Mobile Office is a great way to help him do this," Allen continued.

After the recent redistricting, Crawford's district covers 29 Arkansas counties.

Smith said, since January, he and Crawford have covered over 60,000 miles.

He said Crawford wants his representatives out with the citizens, in case they have concerns.
