Congressman Hanna meets with citizens at Town Hall

By NEWSChannel 2 Staff

MARCY, N.Y. (WKTV) - If you question the way government is run and the choices made on Capitol Hill, Wednesday was the chance to have the ear of our local congressman.

Congressman Richard Hanna held his 46th Town Hall meeting since taking office, but the format was a little different this time.

Instead of having his audience ask questions in front of the group, Hanna met with individuals one-on-one for a more personal response.

It all took place at the Marcy Town Hall with topics ranging from social security to sequestration, along with agriculture and the struggling dairy industry.

"There is a general sense of anxiety and fear and I think somewhat of a sense of loss over the direction of the country," Hanna said. "People feel like we're rudderless and congress isn't doing their job and there's no reason not to believe that."

Hanna went on to say that sometimes it's hard not to agree with those concerns.

On Thursday, Congressman Hanna will head to Rome and a younger audience, taking questions for students at RFA who are interested in government.
