Sanford's staff holds office hours in SC district

OKATIE, S.C. (AP) -- Members of U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford's staff are spending some time meeting with constituents in the Republican's South Carolina district.

For two hours on Tuesday morning, Sanford's staff is holding satellite office hours at Sun City in Okatie. Later in the day, staffers are setting up at the St. Helena Branch Library on St. Helena Island.

Sanford isn't scheduled to attend either event. His office says the gatherings are set up to make Sanford's staff as accessible as possible to constituents who need help on issues related to the federal government.

Sanford also invites anyone wishing to express an opinion or ask a question to stop by.
