Maryland's new 6th Congressional District leader will call Gaithersburg -- not Potomac -- home for one of two district offices.
Congressman John Delaney, of Potomac, has set his team up to work out of 9801 Washingtonian Blvd., Suite 330, in Gaithersburg. He also has offices in Hagerstown and Washington, DC.
Gaithersburg Mayor Sidney A. Katz said at Monday evening's City Council meeting it is the first time the city has housed a congressional office within city limits.
“We have long enjoyed a close relationship with those who represent us on Capitol Hill,” Katz said. “We’re delighted that Congressman Delaney will have an office in our community, allowing him and his staff to continue to provide the high level of accessibility and responsiveness that Gaithersburg residents have come to appreciate.”
