A state representative for part of Pittsburgh's western suburbs has set up two new office locations to make himself more accessible to constituents.

Staff for representative Nick Kotik, D-45 — who represents parts of Carnegie, Scott, Robinson and Coraopolis — will be available in Carnegie and Scott each Wednesday.

“What's evolved over the last few years is we don't get the walk-in traffic we used to get,” he said. “We need more mobile locations.”

Kotik will be at the Scott municipal building from 9 a.m. to noon each Wednesday and at the Carnegie municipal building from 1 to 4 p.m. Constituents can be seen by appointment.

“You can't justify having a full-time office when the walk-in traffic isn't there,” he said.

He said the weekly office hours in the municipal buildings is a more organized structure.

“It just makes it much more efficient to do it that way,” he said. “Otherwise, you might sit there for hours and have two people walk in the whole day.”
