Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) announced today that he will close his Senate office in Prescott, Arizona, on March 31, 2017, and continue serving constituents in Prescott and across northern Arizona through frequent mobile office hours.
“As a United States Senator, it is my highest privilege to serve citizens in Arizona and assist them with matters involving federal agencies,” said Senator McCain. “For years, my office has had a proud presence in Prescott – a place that holds a special place in Arizona’s history and heritage as our Territorial Capital. My deep affection for the City of Prescott was inspired by the late Senator Barry Goldwater, whose tradition of launching every campaign on the steps of the Yavapai County Courthouse I have followed by ending all of my campaigns on those same courthouse steps.
“The growth in population across Arizona’s northern counties has made it increasingly important for my staff to meet citizens where they are by serving them in their own communities. As a result, and after careful consideration, I have decided to close my Prescott office and implement frequent mobile office hours in Prescott and elsewhere across northern Arizona in order to ensure all of these communities are fully served. My constituent advocate staff members are committed to providing the same quality service to the people of Prescott that they have offered for years, and will ensure citizens with pending casework experience no interruption in their service during this transition period.
“I deeply appreciate the courtesy given to me and my staff over the years by the City of Prescott, and I look forward to continuing to provide seamless service to the greater Prescott and northern Arizona area moving forward.”
Senator McCain’s Prescott office will be closed permanently on March 31, 2017, and Senator McCain’s staff will begin offering frequent mobile office hours throughout northern Arizona thereafter. More information about dates and locations for upcoming mobile office hours will be posted on Senator McCain’s website atwww.mccain.senate.gov.
Constituents with existing service inquiries pending at Senator McCain’s office in Prescott will be transferred to his Phoenix office. Senator McCain’s staff will ensure that these citizens experience no interruption in service. The Senator’s offices in Phoenix and Tucson will continue to serve Arizona residents either in person at those offices or via telephone at (602) 952-2410 or (520) 670-6334, or in writing here.
