Reed To Hold Town Hall Meeting Saturday

SALAMANCA – Congressman Tom Reed will hold a town hall meeting Saturday in Cattaraugus County in the city of Salamanca. All constituents with questions, concerns and thoughts are encouraged to attend and participate.

“We’re looking forward to spending the weekend with Southern Tier residents to listen to their thoughts and take what they have to say to Washington,” Reed said. “The kinds of face-to-face conversations we have at these town halls are essential to making sure our area is heard and represented. The more participation, the better.”

Reed has held over 140 town halls in all 11 counties of New York’s 23rd district. The upcoming Salamanca town hall will be held Saturday at 10:30 a.m. at Salamanca City Hall, 225 Wildwood Ave.

Reed recently worked with the Salamanca School District to secure a $2.7 million impact aid award that helped decrease property taxes for residents. Reed called the federal aid a “lifeline for the school district and taxpayers alike” who will see lower taxes as a direct result of the award. Reed has already heard from residents and school employees about partnering in upcoming school years to secure the aid for the area.

Those unable to attend the town hall are encouraged to share their thoughts with Reed through his website (www.Reed.house.gov) or Facebook (www.Facebook.com/RepTomReed). Individuals can also sign up for regular updates through Reed’s website (www.Reed.house.gov/contact-me/newsletter).
