"Being responsive to and making the federal government work for the people of the Fifth District is my top priority, whether it's helping a veteran with their benefits, a senior with their Social Security, or fixing a pothole," said Congressman Josh Gottheimer. "I urge anyone in need of assistance to reach out to me or my team in my new Ringwood office. We are honored to serve you."
Gottheimer is saving taxpayers $2,000 a month in office rent compared to his predecessor. He will also have offices in Glen Rock, Newton, Vernon, Hackensack, and Washington Borough.
