“Many Chester County residents have been hard hit by this pandemic and are in need of support and assistance, particularly as we head into the winter months,” Otten said. “My district office has always been a place where constituents can learn about the state and local resources available to them. Since we are not able to gather in person right now, we wanted to provide a safe, virtual space for our neighbors to ask questions, share concerns, and find information to help them through these challenging times.”
