The constituent services office of state Sen. Don Harmon (D-39th) at 6933 North Ave. will move a few doors west in the next couple of weeks, the Oak Park Democrat told Wednesday Journal.
Noting that his present location faces a significant increase in rent, Harmon said they were able to rent side-by-side offices at 6941 North Ave. The other will become the headquarters for the Democratic Party of Oak Park (DPOP), Harmon said. The strict separation between his constituent office and the political office will continue.
His current office initially opened as his campaign headquarters not quite 14 years ago and became his senate office when he was elected. The DPOP headquarters was situated in the back of his constituent office.
Harmon noted the office would be moved in a day and that there could be a modest disruption to constituent services.
“We will easily be able to make sure that people know where we are going,” he said. “We’re looking at a seamless transition. This is going to be like any household move.”
