Rep. Reed, “I believe in…”

Brenda responded to the previous post with, “That’s his answer to everything…I believe in…”

I have heard that from many, when you write him, when you go to the town hall meetings, he’ll listen and then he’ll tell you what he thinks.

The title of an article in Monday’s Ithaca Journal supports Brenda’s point, “Tom Reed wants focus on mental health after Newtown shootings” . He had his mind made up before he was in Penn Yan. If you were at the meeting in Penn Yan, you heard Rep. Reed move the conversation to mental health. Of course,that created more questions–funding cuts to medical services–background checks dealing with mental illness—that Reed will have to deal with, but that moves the talk away from guns.

After re-reading the Ithaca Journal article, I believe the information was gathered at one of Rep Reed’s Saturday’s Town Hall Meetings, probably in Watkins Glen. He used many of the same phrases in Penn Yan that was reported on in the article.
