Meadows announces Hendersonville office

U.S. Rep.-elect Mark Meadows will locate his main 11th District office at the 1995 Henderson County Courthouse on Grove Street, he announced Tuesday.

Meadows toured the office space on Tuesday with County Manager Steve Wyatt and agreed that it looked good. Wyatt said county commissioners he had spoken with strongly supported Meadows' move to the courthouse and authorized Wyatt to offer the space.
"I am deeply appreciative of the efforts made by the team in Henderson County," Meadows said. "Like all counties in the 11th district, we look forward to building a lasting relationship while working diligently in providing strong constituent services. I look forward to announcing other office locations throughout the 11th District in the coming weeks."

Wyatt said the county will pay for work like carpeting and paint and charge the congressman $500 a month to cover utilities.

"On behalf of the Board and Henderson County staff, we are excited to host the district office of Congressman Meadows," he said.  "The ability to have ready access to the congressman and his staff will be of tremendous benefit to the people he represents. I certainly appreciate the professionalism of the Congressman's staff we have worked with on this project. We look forward to working with them in the months and years to come for the benefit of Western North Carolina and the nation."
Meadows told the Hendersonville Lightning last month that he expected he would need an eastern and western office to cover the 17-county district stretching from Morganton to Mpurphy. He acknowledged that Hendersonville would be a strong candidate for the district headquarters.

Henderson County is the largest county in the district and centrally located, and it strongly supported Meadows in the primary, runoff and general election.
