Marietta, GA — This evening, Rep. Lucy McBath (D-Marietta) held a Town Hall for residents of Georgia’s Sixth Congressional District. The second-term member of the U.S. House of Representatives highlighted her office’s work during her first three years in Congress, including her six bills signed into law. Rep. McBath also emphasized her community assistance program which has helped thousands of community members with their federal cases and secured millions of dollars for the hard-working families and communities of Georgia’s Sixth District.
“Each and every day we are called upon to serve our communities in Congress - that is what this work is about. Our neighbors are trusting us to do everything we can to advocate and legislate on their behalf,” said McBath. “Our work is about serving our community in Congress. I am so proud of the work we did—and continue to do—to return millions of hard-earned dollars to constituents throughout the district and put common-sense, bipartisan legislation into law that will help the families we serve.”
Any constituent in need of additional resources or assistance with any federal agency is encouraged to contact Rep. McBath’s Sandy Springs District Office by calling (470) 773-6330 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
