BELLE VERNON — Effective April 1, Rep. Bud Cook (R-Fayette/Washington) will be opening a new Belle Vernon district office and a new satellite office in California (Center in the Woods). In addition, Cook’s current Bentleyville district office will close on Friday, March 29.

Each of these changes is part of Cook’s ongoing effort to reduce operating costs and improve efficiencies, while maintaining the highest level of constituent service for residents of the 49th Legislative District. In his first term Cook and his district office associates saved Pennsylvania taxpayers more than $12,500 by taking services directly to the constituents and other prudent tax saving management practices.

“Fulfilling my responsibilities as an effective and accessible public servant will always be my top priority,” said Cook. “The people of the 49th District should know that my team and I are here to do everything we possibly can to meet and exceed your expectations both at home and in Harrisburg while reducing the cost of services delivered. Most importantly, I invite everyone to stop by or give us a call because we are here to serve you!”
