U.S. REP. RON BARBER WILL MEET WITH CONSTITUENTS ON SATURDAY
TUCSON – U.S. Rep. Ron Barber and members of his constituent services staff will be at the Rincon Valley Farmers’ Market on Saturday to meet with constituents and offer assistance with the federal government.
“I am looking forward to hearing from people who live in the Rincon Valley and the Vail area,” Barber said today. “This also is an opportunity for individuals who have problems with federal agencies to meet with members of my staff without having to come to the office during the week.”
Constituent services representatives will be at a table at the farmers’ market from 8 a.m. until noon Saturday. Barber will meet with constituents from 9 until 10 a.m.
Barber’s constituent services representatives can help Southern Arizonans with a wide variety of issues.
Many requests for help come from veterans and active-duty military, seniors with issues related to Social Security and Medicare benefits and families struggling to make ends meet. There also are numerous requests for assistance with passports, visas and foreign travel problems.
The most common requests for assistance come from:
- Homeowners trying to navigate the Making Home Affordable program to prevent foreclosure
- Active-duty military dealing with TRICARE and other concerns
- Students who have issues with loans through the Department of Education
- Taxpayers working with the Internal Revenue Service
- Constituents needing help contacting their city, county and state governments
Those services also are available at Barber’s offices in Tucson and Sierra Vista from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
The Rincon Valley Farmers’ Market has been operating for nearly 11 years. The market features farm-fresh local produce, arts, crafts, furniture and activities for the entire family. Details on the market and its vendors are available here.
