WESTMORELAND – In response to mapping changes to the 58th Legislative District, Rep. Eric Davanzo (R-Westmoreland) announced that a member of his staff will be available weekly at the Scottdale Public Library every Wednesday, from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., beginning Jan. 18.
“In the district, providing constituents assistance with state government issues is one of my highest priorities and my staff is knowledgeable and efficient,” Davanzo said. “As I work hard to eliminate bureaucracy within Harrisburg, the reality is that many constituents need help navigating thorough problems with state departments.”
The Scottdale Public Library is located at 106 Spring St., and in close proximity to the borough’s Gazebo Park. The area is easily accessible and close to Westmoreland Transit bus stops.
Required by the Pennsylvania Constitution, every decade the boundaries of the Commonwealth’s House and Senate districts are redrawn to reflect changes in population. The final plan of the 2021 Pennsylvania Legislative Reapportionment Commission made changes to the 58th Legislative District to include the Borough of Scottdale and portions of East Huntingdon Township not previously part of the district. Prior, the areas were represented by Rep. Ryan Warner (R-Fayette), who used a similar process to serve the district.
“It’s an honor to have these folks added to the 58th Legislative District. Because Rep. Warner’s staff also set up there on Wednesdays, we are going to use a similar schedule to provide consistency,” Davanzo said. “Many folks prefer face-to-face communications and my staff and I want to be as accessible as possible.”
Davanzo’s other offices include 119 N. Water St. in West Newton, open from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, and in Mount Pleasant Borough’s municipal building, located at 1 Etze Ave., Suite 212, open from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
The 58th Legislative District includes the City of Monessen and the townships of East Huntingdon, Mount Pleasant (part), North Huntingdon (part), Rostraver, Sewickley and South Huntingdon and the boroughs of Hunker, Madison, Mount Pleasant, North Belle Vernon, Scottdale, Smithton, Sutersville and West Newton.
