April veterans, Social Security workshops planned

by Bradley Hartsell

U.S. Representative Lynn Westmoreland, R - Ga. Third District, has announced two workshops in April for seniors.

On April 15 is a veterans’ workshop at the Asa M. Powell Sr. Expo Center on Temple Avenue in Newnan. A Social Security workshop will be held April 24, also at the Powell Expo Center. Speakers will present from 9 to 11 a.m. and will allow for an opportunity to speak with staff and specialists about individual cases from 11 a.m. until noon.

“I am thankful to have a hard working and dedicated staff in both Washington and Newnan. Their primary job is to assist people of all ages in a number of ways. In the upcoming months, my staff and I have planned a few events to better serve the people of the Georgia’s Third District,” Westmoreland said. “Two of the most common cases my Newnan staff assists with are Social Security and veteran’s affairs,” he added. “For that reason, my district staff has arranged [the] workshops to help navigating the federal system. If you have questions or trouble with your claim – these are two great opportunities to see if we can help.” For information on any of these programs or questions go to the congressman’s website at www.house.gov/westmoreland; call either the Newnan or Washington offices at 770-683-2033 or 202-225-5901, or write Westmoreland a letter, he said.

“As always, I am proud and honored to have the opportunity to serve the people of Georgia’s Third Congressional District,” he said.
