Hassan opens Nashua office

NASHUA — Sen. Maggie Hassan is staking her claim in the Gate City, opening an office on Main Street.

Hassan announced Wednesday she is setting up shop at 142 Main Street, the same downtown building where Se. Kelly Ayotte kept an office. Hassan hopes people in the Nashua region can use her office as a resource.

“Our Senate offices in New Hampshire provide important services for constituents who need assistance and allow them to share their views on issues that are most important to them,” Hassan said. “I encourage Nashuans to stop by or contact our new office to get help with federal agencies, inquire about policy issues, or simply get to know our staff.”

Hassan, the former Democratic Governor, took office this year after beating Republican Ayotte in a closely contested race for the U.S. Senate. Hassan currently has offices in Manchester and Portsmouth, and has a Concord office that is open by appointment only.

The Nashua office, at 142 Main Street, Suite 520, is a place where Granite Staters can speak to Hassan’s staff about issues and concerns, and where they can go for help with federal agencies.

Mayor Jim Donchess said Hassan’s move shows her commitment to the city as it works to revitalize the downtown.

“By establishing an office on Nashua’s Main Street, Senator Hassan is showing her commitment to our city and to the revitalization of its downtown,” Donchess said. “This office will allow her to dedicate more time and resources to her Nashua constituents.”

The office is currently open, and people can contact the Nashua office at 880-3314.
