Hours Extended at Topper’s McConnellsburg Office

To better serve residents, Rep. Jesse Topper’s (R-Bedford/Fulton) McConnellsburg office, located at 421 Lincoln Way East, will now be open through the lunch hour.

Beginning in May, the office will be open from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday-Thursday. It will be closed on Friday.

“As more and more people stop by the office over the lunch hour, it made sense to keep it open to assist more people with state-related issues,” Topper said.

In addition to the McConnellsburg office, Topper also has an office in Bedford. Staff at both locations provide assistance with a variety of state issues and programs, including:

  • PennDOT paperwork (lost cards, changes, corrections, special registration plates, farm plates and exemption stickers, vanity plates and placards for persons with disabilities).
  • Birth certificates.
  • Property Tax and Rent Rebate applications.
  • State tax forms.
  • Referrals to agencies.

The Bedford office, located at 133 S. Richard St., is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Who We Are

The Franklin County Free Press, established by Vicky Taylor in 2019, emerged as a beacon of local journalism for the residents of Franklin County. Under Vicky's leadership, it quickly became an essential source of news, particularly at a time when major newspaper publications were increasingly overlooking local coverage.

On January 1, 2022, the torch was passed to Nathan Neil and his firm, Neil Publishing, LLC. Neil, a local entrepreneur with multiple thriving businesses in Chambersburg, shares Vicky's fervent commitment to both the community and the world of local journalism.
