U.S. Rep. Dave Reichert opened a district office in Issaquah on Thursday, after redistricting prompted the Auburn Republican to relocate from the former office on Mercer Island.

“I’m excited to be moving to Issaquah,” Reichert said in a statement. “My priority as a congressman is serving my district and my constituents.”

Constituents can visit the office in the Sammamish View Office Building, 22605 S.E. 56th St., Suite 130. Call 677-7414.

The district office site in Issaquah needed to meet congressional security criteria.

Reichert chose Issaquah due to easy access from communities throughout the redrawn 8th Congressional District. The reshaped district stretches from Auburn to Wenatchee. The former district encompassed only communities in King and Pierce counties.

The congressman announced plans to relocate from Mercer Island to Issaquah on Feb. 24.

    More’s the pity!! I would think that North Bend would be more suitable to Reichert’s ilk. At least he is on 56th and not Front. And from the vitolic voices from Chelan County, Reichert needs to open an office over there in order to convince “the folk” that they have not lost Doc Hastings, they have gained another. Shame on slade and is swarmy redistricting. We lost–Wenatchee did not.

Got something to say?
