District Offices Now Open in Pocono Pines, Effort
By Rep. Jack Rader (R-Monroe)

Last week, I joined my staff in opening two new district offices designed to serve the constituents of the 176th Legislative District. It continues to be a great honor to serve as your representative in Harrisburg, and I want to make sure you know about the wide range of services provided by my district offices.

The office in Effort is located at the Carriage House Square, 2785 Route 115, in Suite 103. The office can be reached at (570) 620-4341 and will be open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Pocono Pines office is in the Tobyhanna Township Building, located at 105 Government Center Way; can be reached at (570) 643-7683; and will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays.

My offices offer the following services:

 • Driver’s license and vehicle registration applications and renewals.  
 • Assistance with PennDOT paperwork (lost cards, name and address changes, corrections, special registration plates, vanity plates and placards for disabled persons).  
 • PACE and PACENET applications for seniors.
 • Property Tax and Rent Rebate applications.
 • Voter registration forms and absentee ballot applications.  
 • Birth and death certificates.
 • Free state maps, state park information and PA Vacation Guides.
 • State tax forms.
 • Referrals to agencies to resolve state-related matters.
With the district offices up and running, work also continues in Harrisburg on major issues facing Monroe County and the Commonwealth. I have been assigned to four House committees, including Children and Youth, Human Services, Local Government, and Tourism and Recreational Development.

These assignments capitalize on my professional background, which includes decades as a small business owner and as a township supervisor.

The House Local Government Committee reviews and considers legislation affecting county and municipal governments across the Commonwealth.

The Human Services Committee considers legislation related to programs and services that help persons with disabilities, those who suffer from alcohol or drug addiction, and the professionals who help these communities.

The Children and Youth Committee works with the House Judiciary Committee, as well as the state Department of Human Services and Office of Children, Youth and Families, to oversee child day care programs and adoption and foster care issues.

I am also proud to serve on the House Tourism and Recreational Development Committee, since tourism is not only one of the Commonwealth’s major industries, but is also very important to our communities here in Monroe County.

As the legislative session continues, I will work to keep you informed through a wide range of outlets, including my legislative Facebook page at and, of course, this column.
