Walko arranging for constituent service during transition

State Rep. Don Walko, D-Allegheny, has appointed a transition manager who will assist him in handling matters relating to the closing of his district office. The manager will work with Walko to keep the office open for constituent services through the end of the year, when Walko resigns to take office as a judge in Allegheny County Common Pleas Court.

Working with House Democratic leadership, Walko is arranging for continued constituent service coverage for the residents of the 20th Legislative District until his successor takes office, which is expected to be no later than June. Details of those arrangements will be released in the near future.

Walko’s office is located at 3880 Perrysville Ave.; phone 412-321-5523.

The 20th Legislative District includes part or all of several Pittsburgh neighborhoods, including the North Side, Strip District, Lawrenceville and Polish Hill, as well as West View Borough and parts of Reserve and Ross townships.
