Paul announces new Mobile Office policy Monthly schedule will give constituents easier access to innovative service

FREEPORT, Texas -- Considered by many to be one of the most innovative constituent service projects of US Rep. Ron Paul (R-Surfside, TX), the Mobile Office is being improved with a new, set schedule.
The Mobile Office is a specially designated white minivan that travels the district to give constituents more direct contact with a member of Rep. Paul's staff. The office, like its traditional counterparts, is able to assist constituents with problems ranging from IRS troubles to difficulties dealing with the Veterans Administration and Social Security Administration. Constituents actually meet with the staff member at the Mobile Office.
"This new schedule means constituents will know exactly where the Mobile Office is every month," said Rep. Paul, announcing the change.
Under the new scheduling program, there will be 23 "set" stops where the Mobile Office will be every month on the same, except for major holidays (such as Easter, Christmas and the Fourth of July). In addition to those "set" stops, the Office will make "variable" stops to up to 20 additional locales around the district.
"To date, hundreds of constituents have been served by the Mobile Office. I am confident this new arrangement will make the office even more accessible."
Rep. Paul's office will continue to provide a schedule for the Mobile Office stops each month. The schedule is released to every district newspaper and posted the congressman's web site (
