Team Summer Lee Serves Over 50 Community Members at Grand Opening of Jeannette Satellite Office in Westmoreland County, After Serving 40+ At Yesterday’s Clairton Satellite Office With 3 other Locations Soon to be Announced

(Pittsburgh, PA) – Today, US Congresswoman Summer Lee (PA-12) proudly opened the second of five new satellite offices in Jeannette, Pennsylvania in Westmoreland County with the first one opening yesterday in Clairton and three more locations across PA-12 set to be announced in the coming days. These offices demonstrate Congresswoman Lee’s commitment to providing accessible, convenient constituent services and creating stronger connections with the constituents of Allegheny and Westmoreland Counties.

Lee said, “Today we opened our new satellite office in Jeannette, Westmoreland County, and it was a huge success! On our first day, my team helped over 50 constituents with different problems like mental health, finding ways to lower Medicare prescription drug costs, IRS issues, and helping cut down energy bills. Our goal is to make sure everyone gets the help they need, right where they live. We’re excited to open more offices like this one in the coming days and really looking forward to making sure we’re doing everything we can for our communities. The consensus we heard today was that folks in Jeannette have felt left behind for far too long, and we are here to change that!”

Location: 110 S. 2nd Street, Jeannette, PA 15644

Huntingdon, Sewickley, and Export —ensuring that no matter where you are, solutions are close to home.

All satellite offices are strategically placed within 20 minutes of every constituent in the district, with easy access via public transportation. These new locations are housed within municipal buildings, allowing constituents to access a range of services—from local taxes to planning— all in a single visit.

Yesterday’s Clairton Satellite Office Grand Opening:

Date: Wednesday, November 15th

Location: 551 Ravensburg Blvd, Clairton, PA

Time: 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM

Services Offered:

Congresswoman Lee’s offices are prepared to assist with various concerns, including but not limited to, passports, Medicare, Social Security, veterans’ affairs, IRS inquiries, tax issues, and immigration. Emphasizing a policy of inclusion, no individual seeking help is turned away; if a direct solution is not available, referrals are provided to guarantee everyone receives the necessary support.

Residents are encouraged to join the opening events and to utilize the services provided at the new satellite offices.

Future updates will be provided as we finalize the details on the other three locations.


Since taking office in January, Lee, who serves on the House Oversight Committee and Space, Science and Technology Committee, has delivered historic levels of federal investment totaling over $870 million brought back to Western PA, including over $200 million for infrastructure, over $50 million for affordable transit, and over $500 million to keep clean energy manufacturing at home in Pennsylvania. These investments will help improve Western Pennsylvania’s infrastructure and transit, ensure cleaner air and drinking water, lower housing costs, fund research institutions, fuel clean manufacturing, fund STEM innovation and entrepreneurship, boost workforce development, and create thousands of good paying union jobs.  Lee and her team have also delivered casework and constituent services to over 1,380 constituents with issues ranging from helping our seniors and disabled community access Medicare and social security to helping folks secure housing and helping families with immigration support and passports.
