U.S. Rep. Tom Reed is accustomed to facing a room full of constituents who want to hear about the work he’s involved in, but the questions and comments that came from the group he faced in Dundee Feb. 2 were not typical.
Reed spent some of his Friday afternoon with Dundee High School students, sharing details about serving as the 23rd Congressional District representative.
His visit was the result of an email sent by Dundee senior Wylie Hall, who invited Reed to meet with the Government class. Dundee teacher Adam Farrell worked with Reed’s office to arrange the visit, which ended up being a surprise to Hall and the other Dundee students.
“I was surprised. I knew it was going to be a politician, but I didn’t think it was going to be him,” said Hall after the government class and members of the student government met with Reed.
