Rep. Jerry Knowles (R-124) and Sen. David Argall (R-29) will hold an open house from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Oct. 6 in their district office at 237 West Broad Street in Tamaqua.

"This open house is an opportunity for residents of my district to meet my staff and familiarize themselves with my office and the many services we can provide," said Knowles. "It will also give me the chance to meet my constituents face to face and answer any questions they may have about state government."

Knowles shares his Tamaqua and Orwigsburg offices with Argall. Argall also shares his Hamburg office with Knowles.

"Sharing local offices with Representative Knowles provides maximum service to local people at a minimum cost," Argall said. "This should always be our goal, especially in these times of budget stress. This was the shared-office model that Senator Rhoades and I adopted many years ago and it is one that Rep. Knowles and I will continue to follow."
