Assemblywoman Cathy Nolan has closed two of her district offices and opened a new one in Long Island City.
Her former Sunnyside office, at 41-02 Queens Blvd., and Ridgewood office, at 61-08 Linden St., closed last week, staffer Ira Greenberg said Friday.
The new Long Island City office is located at 47-40 21 St., and is up and running as of this week.
“As always, we look forward to hearing from you,” Nolan said in a release sent out Friday afternoon. “Consolidating into one office allows us to be more efficient and secure.”
The space is near the 21st Street G train stop and Hunters Point Ave. 7 train stop, not far from MoMA PS1.
Nolan has reduced the size and hours of her staff, according to former employee Sam Vargas and several other sources who did not wish to be identified. These cut backs have taken place over the past few months.
Greenberg referred the LIC Post to communications director David Aglialoro for further questions. When reached by phone Monday afternoon, Aglialoro said he was unable to immediately answer questions about staffing at the office.
