GLENS FALLS - U.S. Rep. Scott Murphy opened his new office in downtown Glens Falls today in an event that lured dozens of people.
Murphy, D-Glens Falls, used the open house to answer questions and hear comments on various subjects such as health care, the recent House-approved climate bill, and the revitalization of downtown Glens Falls.
"It's fun to hear what people have to say," said the congressman as he led the public inside his 136 Glen Street office for a tour.
Prior to the open house, Murphy visited the Chocolate Mill Pastry Shop & Cafe on 164 Glen Street.
The business will soon open after its owners, Frank and Jessica Vollkommer, received a $125,000 loan from the Small Business Administration. Murphy's office helped the new owners apply for the loan.
To contact Murphy at his Glens Falls office, call 743-0964.
