Pryor's mobile office travels through Region 8

WYNNE, AR (KAIT) - Representatives from Senator Mark Pryor's office are rolling through the Region 8 area.

Wednesday Pryor's mobile office traveled to Prairie, Woodruff, Cross, and Poinsett counties.

Field Representative Frank Bateman says they're working to help Arkansans solve any issues they're having with services involving the federal government. "We're going around helping people," Bateman said. "That may have problems with VA, Social Security, IRS or any kind of problem with the federal government. Help them kind of get through the red tape. Pick up the case work and take it back to the case workers and work it out at the Little Rock office."

This mobile office was put into effect when Senator Pryor first took office. Bateman says people often don't know who turn to when they reach an obstacle. "We want to be able to help people that may not know where else to go," Bateman said. "To get some help with social security or any kind of problem with the federal government. They may not know who to turn to and we are here on behalf of Senator Pryor and he's very interested in helping as many people in Arkansas as he can."

The mobile office travels to all 75 counties.

Bateman says three representatives travel with the mobile office and that each representative covers twenty-five counties in Arkansas. "We're on the second leg of the tour, here, in Northeast Arkansas. These are my counties and then we'll do a rotation into the counties of the other representatives."

The mobile office will be in Craighead, Greene and Clay counties on Thursday.
