Washington, D.C. -- The Washington, D.C., office and the district office of former Representative Ed Whitfield will continue to serve the people of the First Congressional District of Kentucky under the supervision of the Clerk of the House of Representatives. Representative Whitfield resigned from Congress on September 7, 2016.

Staff members of Representative Whitfield remain on the House payroll under the supervision of the Clerk of the House to receive and undertake constituent casework, to help in handling business with the departments of the executive branch of the government, to provide general status information on pending legislation, and to offer other general constituent services provided by House offices. The Clerk of the House is Karen L. Haas.

The Washington, D.C., office and the Kentucky district offices are presently open on a daily basis to accommodate congressional business.

Eleven vacancies occurred in the 113th Congress due to resignation or death.
