Congressman Tim Bishop’s office, which had been located on Route 112 in Coram since he was elected eight years ago, was moved to Patchogue last weekend.
Bishop aide Jon Schneider said the office was moved primarily due to logistics, but also because of some maintenance issues.
“When a ceiling tile falls on the congressman’s chair, shall we say, it’s a sign from above?” Mr. Schneider said. “We loved the location. Coram is right in the heart of our district, but Patchogue is too and we’re excited about the new location.”
While the new space for Mr. Bishop’s staff of seven people isn’t much bigger than the former location, one positive difference is its proximity to a train station, Mr. Schneider said.
An open house will be held at Mr. Bishop’s new office, located at 31 Oak St., later this month.
The new phone number is 631-289-6500.
