DURANT, OK -- Congressman Markwayne Mullin plans to close his Durant office as a way to save money and improve customer service.
It will now become apart of the McAlester office, but the old Durant office phone number will remain active.
He says this provides more opportunities for field representative Eddy Dempsey to interact with the community and spend more time on the road.
Mullin has also created mobile office hours in each county of the Second District.
He believes this transition from a typical office environment will engage the community, as the mobile locations will be closer to where people live and work.
