Democratic Congressional Nominee Tracy Mitrano (NY-23) announced the kick off of her “One District” Campaign and hosted a town hall in Geneva on Wednesday.
In the spirit of reaching as many people as possible throughout the district, Mitrano said that she will be hosting a series of town halls in the remaining ten counties of New York’s 23rd Congressional District in the weeks leading up to election day on November 6, 2018.
“Our ‘One District’ campaign unites the 23rd,” Mitrano said. “Tom Reed talks about the district in divisive ways, which is an inappropriate exercise of Congressional leadership. Specific concerns between communities and among constituents vary, but we have a great deal in common. Residents of the 23rd have many of the same values and concerns. People want accessible, affordable healthcare. They want educational opportunities for their children and grandchildren—opportunities that don’t come with crippling debt. They want a robust economy, one where infrastructure is up-to-date and our farmers, laborers, small business owners, and professionals receive the support they need.”
Mitrano will host town halls in the ten remaining counties in the coming weeks.
“Town hall meetings give citizens an opportunity to voice their concerns directly,” Mitrano said. “Tom Reed holds a lot of town halls, but he does not seem to genuinely listen. He doesn’t act on his constituents’ concerns. We can do better than that. I’m here to learn, and to take action in Washington on your behalf.”
