Congressman Mark DeSaulnier

Representing the 11th District of California


As your Member of Congress, one of my top priorities is to assist with questions or concerns you may be having with a federal agency. Contact our office if we can be of assistance to you, a family member, or a friend.

In order to provide better service to our constituents, we have two district offices; one  in Walnut Creek and the other in Richmond. Both offices are open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. PT. Our Washington D.C. office is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET

Are you eligible for assistance?
