Powershell script help request: using read-host variables

I have a script that creates a new domain user, one line is like:

$office = read-host "Enter the user's location, Michigan, Mississippi, Georgia, Oklahoma"

I want to populate the street, city, state and zip attributes automatically based off which location is input.

How could I go about that?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

With a "Switch" for example:
Switch ($Office) {
	"Michigan" {
		$Street = "..."
		$City = "..."
		$State = "..."
		$Zip = "..."
	}
	"Mississippi" {
		$Street = "..."
		$City = "..."
		$State = "..."
		$Zip = "..."
	}
	"Georgia" {
		$Street = "..."
		$City = "..."
		$State = "..."
		$Zip = "..."
	}
	"Oklahoma" {
		$Street = "..."
		$City = "..."
		$State = "..."
		$Zip = "..."
	}
	default {
		"Unknown office: '$($Office)'!" | Write-Error
		Exit 1
	}
}
