WAYNESBORO, PA. - With the former state representative's office now closed and the new ones not ready to open, residents of the 90th House District are asked to visit State Sen. Terry Punt for constituent services.

Patrick E. Fleagle's last official day as southern Franklin County's state representative was Thursday. The 18-year incumbent's office on South Potomac Street has had its telephones and computers removed over the past couple weeks.

Todd A. Rock, who was elected to the seat Nov. 7, is setting up offices just off the center squares of both Waynesboro and Greencastle, Pa. Neither will be open for a few weeks, but Rock is currently readying them for phone lines.

"I want to take those calls as soon as I can. That's a priority," Rock said.

He will be sworn in Jan. 2.

In the meantime, Rock and Fleagle have been directing constituents to Punt, R-Franklin, for assistance.


Punt's office in Waynesboro Borough Hall is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. It closes between noon and 1 p.m.

Punt also has an office in Chambersburg, Pa., that is open every weekday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Services provided are anything related to state business, including birth and death certificates, Pennsylvania Department of Transportation matters, vehicle tags, and PACE and rent rebate applications.

Fleagle and Rock, both Republicans, first squared off in the May 17 GOP primary election. Rock won the primary, but Fleagle had more write-in votes from Democrats and appeared on ballots as the Democratic nominee in November.

Rock carried the election by 1,702 votes.
