Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Dave Loebsack met with Ken Powell, the Social Security Administration Kansas City Regional Commissioner and again expressed his opposition to the closure of the Clinton SSA field office.  The Clinton SSA Office is part of the Kansas City Region and overseen by Regional Commissioner Powell.

“In today’s meeting I again expressed my strong opposition to the closure of the Clinton office,” said Loebsack.  “I have heard from many members of the community whom are concerned about the impact on local seniors and beneficiaries.  It is unfortunate that the Social Security Administration has not taken into account the loud local opposition to this closure, and has failed to make the business case argument for closing the office.  I will continue to fight the proposed closing.”

Loebsack has voiced strong opposition to the closure of the field office in Clinton.  Most recently, he urged the House Appropriations Committee to block the closure in appropriations legislation, and spoke personally with Social Security Administration Commissioner Astrue to oppose the move.
