News Release, Office of Democrat Majority Leader Steny Hoyer(D-Md-05)

LEXINGTON PARK, MD – This morning(November 26, 2019), Congressman Steny H. Hoyer (MD-05) visited the Charlotte Hall Social Security Administration (SSA) Field Office in Charlotte Hall and the Lexington Park VA Community-Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC) in Lexington Park.

The Charlotte Hall SSA Field Office provides assistance to Marylanders who are filing Social Security claims. The new VA facility in Lexington Park opens on December 2 and will provide care close to home for thousands of veterans in Southern Maryland. 

“Ensuring seniors and veterans have the assistance and care they need that is close to home in Southern Maryland is critically important,” said Congressman Hoyer. “I appreciated the opportunity to visit the Charlotte Hall SSA Field Office to receive an update on how the facility is serving people in our community. This facility ensures residents seeking to file claims in Southern Maryland have important resources close to home.”

“I was also very pleased to tour the new Lexington Park VA CBOC, which I have been working hard to fund for the past several years,” continued Congressman Hoyer. “For too long, veterans in Southern Maryland have had to travel far from their homes to receive the quality care they need. This new facility, in addition to the new CBOC under construction in Charlotte Hall, will provide state-of-the-art care to thousands of veterans close to home.”

“I join in thanking the staff at both the Charlotte Hall SSA Field Office and the Lexington Park CBOC for the work they are doing to help seniors, veterans, and those with disabilities in Southern Maryland,” concluded Congressman Hoyer. “I will continue to advocate for both these facilities, and work to ensure they have the resources they need to effectively serve Fifth District residents.”

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
