UTICA, NY – Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi, the Democratic candidate for the 22nd Congressional district in New York, held a town hall in Utica Tuesday evening.

Brindisi has held a number of town hall meetings throughout the 22nd district since April.

Tuesday’s event at the thINCubator on Broad Street, is his 7th.

Some of the topics brought up by the audience included the downtown hospital, medical marijuana, corporate campaign funding, and net neutrality.

Before taking questions from the audience Brindisi spoke with the media on a variety of topics, including the federal tax cuts that were implemented earlier this year.

“Many of the major corporations out there are not using that money to increase the wages of their workers. There is a report out today that shows the average worker’s wage has fallen, not increased, while many of these companies that have been the real beneficiaries of the tax bill have used that money to increase the profits of their shareholders.”

Congresswoman Claudia Tenney’s campaign issued the following statement in response.

“While parroting Cuomo and Pelosi in a phony town hall stocked with his liberal supporters and the impeach Trump crowd, Brindisi should listen to the people of the Mohawk Valley. 95 percent of whom have received a tax cut, and go into local small businesses who have created jobs and put more money into their employees' pockets thanks to tax reform.”
