Rep. Tom Reed, who was sworn in Jan. 3, 2013, to represent New York's 23rd Congressional District, will hold his first four town hall meetings in the newly drawn district Saturday in Cattaraugus and Chautauqua counties.
"The conversations we have at these public town halls are central to representing our district, and I always welcome the conversation - the topics are up to residents," Reed said. "With this new district, we will continue to hold these open, face-to-face discussions to answer questions, listen to concerns and gather input."
During Reed's two-year term as Congressman for the 29th District, he held more than 75 public town hall meetings, and has pledged to do the same in the 23rd District.
Town halls will be held Saturday as follows:
8 a.m. Hanover Town Hall, 68 Hanover St., Silver Creek
10:30 a.m. Westfield Village Hall, 23 Elm St., Westfield
1 p.m. Carroll Town Hall, 5 W. Main St., Frewsburg
3:30 p.m. Olean Public Library, 134 N. Second St., Olean
Those unable to attend the town halls are encouraged to share their thoughts with Reed through his website www.Reed.house.gov or on Facebook at www.Facebook.com/RepTomReed. Individuals can also sign up for regular e-updates through Reed's website.
The newly drawn 23rd District includes the counties of Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Chemung, Ontario, Schuyler, Seneca, Steuben, Tioga, Tompkins and Yates.
