ITHACA, N.Y. — Congressman Tom Reed announced Wednesday morning that he is hosting a town hall on the Southside of Ithaca.
The town hall is happening from 8 – 9 a.m. on March 11 at the Southside Community Center, located at 305 S. Plain St.
According to Reed’s Communications Director Brandy Brown, the last time Reed had a town hall meeting at a location in the City of Ithaca was May 2, 2016, when he spoke in a classroom at Cornell University. The last time he hosted one in Ithaca, and not at Cornell, was June 20, 2015.
Reed also met with a group of protesters who were camping out in his office for nearly three days after refusing to leave until they spoke with him.
The Ithaca town hall is happening in conjunction with three other town halls taking place on the same day.
Reed said in the news release, “We continue to hold town halls because I believe that having an open dialogue with my neighbors in New York’s 23 rd district is the cornerstone of our democracy. I will always listen and work to find common ground to solve the problems facing our great nation.”
