Keep staff at the Galesburg Social Security office

Letters to the editor

Editor, Registry Mail: Dear Congresswoman Bustos, I have watched with great concern in recent years how the Galesburg Social Security office has suffered serious staff losses. The Galesburg office has always been staffed with hardworking, dedicated and knowledgeable professionals. When I started the office in 2010, I believe there were nine employees. I have noticed from January 1, 2022, there will only be two full time and one part time employee.

I have heard stories of frustration with local office workers from my colleagues in other parts of the country with whom I communicate. I am a member of the National Association of Disability Representatives, we share information through a dedicated listserv. I have always considered myself very fortunate to work with the Galesburg office.
