ITHACA, N.Y. — Hundreds of people showed up at the Southside Community Center in Ithaca Saturday morning — some of whom arrived as early as 4 a.m. — to take part in a town hall with Congressman Tom Reed.
Dr. Nia Nunn, Southside Community Center Board President, gave opening remarks about the historic relevance of the center and its current role in the Ithaca community. Then, Reed took on questions from the crowd.
While most of Reed’s hour-long visit focused on questions about general health care, the repeal of the Affordable Care Act and women’s health needs, Reed also answered questions about environmental concerns, President Donald Trump and LGBTQ issues.
