State Rep. Kotik opens 2 more offices to meet with constituents
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.”

TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
