In November, 2017, Tom Reed’s website changed. The revised site is slick and attractive, and there is one important change–the link to “media” (op eds and press releases) is gone. Articles previously filed by title are now filed by a non-descriptive document number. All are now filed under “news.”
Links to Reed’s press releases and op eds on “New NY 23rd” are no longer valid, but the articles may still be found by searching. For example, searching for “taxes” finds many articles including this one from 2012:
The title of this 2012 op ed is “Focus on Spending and Solutions, Not Taxes and Blame”
Over the years Tom’s website has become slicker but less informative. For example, in 2015 a link to Tom’s financial disclosures disappeared. Tom’s facebook page also changed in November–visitor comments are now disallowed.
Tom’s press releases document how his views have evolved over the years. It is good that they can still be found by searching. Searching here on “New NY 23rd” also turns up much interesting reading.
I saw the new website last night when I was looking for Rep. Reed’s Town Hall Meetings. They are easy to find since they have their own spot on the Menu Bar. The meetings are listed chronically whith the newest one on top. We are also able to leave comments about the Town Halls. The comments should be interesting reading. I wonder if they will be censored.
I am disappointed that they links in the New NY23rd articles to the website are broken. There must be good reasons for those changes.

Please, let’s stop wasting so much time posting about the minutia of Congressman Reed’s website and FB page and start posting the on issues, statements, appearances, platforms and upcoming events of all potential candidates who have announced their intent to run for the CD-23 seat.
There are many candidates who have announced. Let’s start sharing and discussing “the good”, “the bad” and “the ugly” about these candidates.
We here in WNY have seen ads in favor of the #GOPTaxScam by the so-called “Pratt” family who tout the good deeds of Representatives Reed & Collins for passing this ridiculous bill, our local news station carried a story that these people are not even from NY, but Minnesota.
Come on Tommy, couldn’t find anyone from our district?
Did you notice that those ads were on TV weeks before the bill was written?
Those ads are still being shoved down our throats here like those two doofuses did something great.
At least the NY State taxpayers arte not paying for these ads like they are for the “NY Is Open For Business” TV commercials that governor Cuomo is running in over one half of the states including here in NY State. I have seen these taxpayer funded ads in PA, NJ, MD, FL, TX, OH and IL
Imagine that, using our tax payer money to run commercials on teh NY business climate. Do you think any real company would fall for this hype?!?!? This is meant for the Presidential election of 2010.
Andrew Cuomo using taxpayer funds to run for President!!!!!
Big Government sucks !
