State Rep. Doyle Heffley's Lansford office opened at 10 a.m. today.

The office, at the American Legion at 3 W. Ridge St., will be open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. each Wednesday. The satellite office hours are being held so that "residents will have a local place to go to ask legislative questions and learn about services and programs offered by state government," a press release distributed Tuesday afternoon said.

In addition to his Harrisburg office, Heffley has offices in Lehighton, at 110 N. Third St., and in Albrightsville, at 2681 Route 903, Unit 3.
