Brindisi Addresses 100 Constituents During First Congressional Town Hall
Congressman Anthony Brindisi (NY-22) held his first congressional town hall in Binghamton today, taking questions from a crowd of nearly 110 constituents. Brindisi took questions straight from the audience on a wide variety of topics including the government shutdown, rising health care costs, border security, education, and more.
“The default in Washington is to spend more time fighting and finger pointing than listening and learning,” said Brindisi. “That’s not my approach. I want to bring people together, listen to different opinions, and work to find common ground. For me, that starts here at home. My constituents deserve to know exactly where I stand on issues and how I’m making decisions in Washington. I want Upstate New Yorkers to know that I am listening to them and to trust that I will always put their best interests first.”
The town hall was the first in a series of town halls that Brindisi has pledged to hold as a member of Congress. He will hold one town hall meeting each month, visiting every county in NY-22 during 2019. All events will be free and open to the public.
