“I know people lead busy lives and it is important that we make it as easy as possible for them to reach my offices,” Senator Vogel said. “These district offices are here for one purpose – to help people receive the state services they deserve. That means helping people on a case-by-case basis. I hope people can find time to stop in, see what is available and chat a bit. ”
