Graves Begins 113th Congress01/03/13
Washington D.C. – U.S. Congressman Sam Graves was sworn in to the new term of Congress that began Thursday. Graves now officially represents the 36 counties of Missouri’s Sixth Congressional District in Congress.
Graves has also realigned his offices within the district to provide more locations, but at a reduced cost to taxpayers. The St. Joseph office has moved from the Downtown Post Office to the Buchanan County Courthouse. The Liberty Office has moved to the Platte County Resource Center in Kansas City. In addition, Graves will open a third office in Hannibal in the coming weeks.
“Whether it’s resolving problems with a federal agency or simply scheduling a tour of the Capitol, my offices will continue to provide exceptional constituent service for North Missouri,” said Graves. “We’ve reduced our budget expenses by 10% in the last two years and we will continue to do more with less.”
Graves also announced the hiring of Aaron Baker to be a field representative based in Hannibal. Baker is a native of Atlanta, Mo. where he still lives with his wife Erica and their two children. Baker is a 2004 graduate of the University of Missouri with a degree in Agriculture Economics. He previously served as the Chief of Staff to State Senator Bill Stouffer. Baker will be the primary contact for the counties of: Adair, Audrain, Clark, Knox, Lewis, Macon, Marion, Monroe, Pike, Ralls, Scotland and Shelby.
“I’m excited to have someone with Aaron’s experience and knowledge working day-to-day with North Missourians,” said Graves. “His deep roots and commitment to public service will be an asset for everyone.”
