The heart and soul of a congressman, what sets him apart from other representatives, is his ideology and his style. His ideology is what he believes in and the things he wants to accomplish while in office. The member's at-home behavior, and the image he projects through appearances, actions, and the media constitute his particular "home style." The congressman's personal contacts, however, are not the only way he communicates and projects his ideology and his style. One institution through which these things are projected is the congressman's district office. It is this institution which. will be explored in this paper. We will examine the district offices of Mark Siljander of the 4th district of Michigan, and Howard Wolpe of the 3rd Michigan district, and through comparing and contrasting these two individual operations, hope to make some generalizations about district office as a whole. We especially wish to examine the relationship of the congressman and the district office, and evaluate the ways the representative is able or mabIe to institute his ideology and style into the district office.If you are not a current K College student, faculty, or staff member, email firstname.lastname@example.org to request access to this SIP.
