Several members of the New York congressional delegation attended Governor Cuomo’s state of the state address yesterday, but not our congressman, Rep. Tom Reed. It’s too bad he wasn’t there. He would have had a valuable opportunity to interact with state leaders. Moreover, in the governor’s speech, he would have heard much about issues important to his constituents, such as increasing upstate tourism, bolstering education and job training, and responding to the threats posed by global warming. The governor also spoke eloquently about equal opportunity for women and measures to reduce gun violence. The congressman has a laser focus on cutting Social Security and Medicare. He should raise his sights.
