Rep. Reed To Hold Listening Sessions On Syria

The following is a press release:


Schedules times for constituents to share thoughts 

on U.S. involvement in Syrian civil war

Congressman Tom Reed today announced that he will conduct six listening sessions this week before returning to Washington next week to debate President’s Obama’s request for consent from Congress to launch attacks on Syria.

“While we have had many constituents calling our offices with their thoughts on whether or not the U.S. should get involved in this civil war, I also want to hear people’s thoughts in person,” Reed said.

Reed will be available in person Tuesday at the following times and locations:

8:00AM           Big Flats Town Hall, 476 Maple St., Big Flats

10:00AM         Owego Town Hall, 2354 NYS Route 434, Owego

1:00PM           Geneva Fire Hall, 79 Geneva St., Geneva (public asked to use rear entrance)

“The President sent his resolution to Congress just yesterday. While this is short notice, I hope that people will be able to stop by,” Reed said. “Of course all of our offices will continue to receive calls of those who cannot make one of the listening sessions.”

Reed will conduct sessions in Hornell, Olean, and Dunkirk on Wednesday, with times and locations to be announced as soon as details are finalized. Constituents can also continue to email Rep. Reed at
