Message from Congressman Rogers

As we adjust to the rapid changes taking place across Kentucky and around the world in response to the new coronavirus, I want to assure you that I am keeping your safety and best interests at heart as I continue to advocate for you, your family, and our neighbors in Southern and Eastern Kentucky. 

My Kentucky District Offices in Somerset, Hazard and Prestonsburg remain open to the public. However, with growing restrictions in place, individuals living in Kentucky's Fifth Congressional District can also contact my office toll-free at 1-800-632-8588.
