Conshohocken Borough Manager Francis Marabella announced that U.S. Representative Allyson Schwartz (D-13) is looking for a satellite office in Conshohocken.
Marabella said that he showed potential office space in the borough building to the representative's staff, and she is also considering a spot at the Fellowship House on Harry and E. Fifth Streets.
Both Marabella and Fellowship House Executive Director Darlene Hildebrand said that the Schwartz staff was looking for a small office to keep files that can be locked.
“It’s a win-win,” Hildebrand said of having an office for Schwartz at Fellowship House. “It gives constituents a place to go, and most people know where the Fellowship House is.”
After the 2011 Congressional redistricting, Schwartz became the representative for the entire borough of Conshohocken and parts of Upper Merion, which were previously represented by Jim Gerlach (R-06) and Pat Meehan (R-07).
Schwartz currently has an office in Jenkintown and Northeast Philadelphia.
