McGovern Announces New Washington, D.C. Office Location: Room 408 of the Cannon House Office Building
U.S. Congressman Jim McGovern (D-MA) announced today that the Office of Massachusetts’ Second Congressional District in Washington, D.C. has moved to Room 408 of the Cannon House Office Building.
The mandatory move was prompted by an ongoing, long-term renewal project of the Cannon Building undertaken by the Architect of the Capitol – during which occupants must relocate in phases while workers preserve and restore the historic structure. The second district’s new office is in an area of the building that has been restored and reopened to the public.
Completed in 1908, the Cannon Building is the oldest congressional office building other than the United States Capitol. According to the Architect of the Capitol, the century-old building is currently plagued by safety, health, environmental and operational issues that pose a serious danger to both staff and members of Congress. The entire renewal project is scheduled to take approximately 10 years, with five phases aligned to fall between Congressional move cycles. Recent photos of the renewal project can be found here.
“This office belongs to the people of Massachusetts’ Second District,” said Congressman McGovern. “One of the greatest gifts of working here is getting to share it with them when they visit. I encourage and invite everyone to visit my website and schedule a tour with us during their next trip to Washington, D.C. to learn about the amazing history of the United States Capitol Building.”
The phone number for the office, (202) 225-6101, will remain the same, and any mail which has already been sent to the current office will be redirected to the new office.
