Knoxville Office


Below you can find information for my Knoxville office. You are welcome to phone or send a message to me through the U.S. Postal Service. Please note that postal mail is the slowest method for contacting me. All postal mail sent to my offices must be scanned for security purposes, which means it will take an additional two weeks for me to receive it. If you prefer, you may contact me by e-mail.

Please contact my Knoxville office if you need help with a federal agency or individual assistance and you live in one of the following counties: Knox, Grainger, Claiborne, Jefferson, or Campbell.  If you live in Blount or Loudon County, please contact my Maryville office.

To express your opinion on legislative issues, please e-mail me or contact my Washington, D.C. office.
