HAMILTON- Congressional candidate Anthony Brindisi joined Colgate University Sunday afternoon. Brindisi hosted his first of four town hall meetings. The Assemblyman opened the floor for discussion from his potential voters. Discussion ranged from a variety of topics from gun control to renewing the tax reform.

“I like his view on his tax reform,” said Karol Kucinski from Norwich. “I think it will better our nation as a whole.”

The Assemblyman answered questions from potential voters for over an hour. Within the questions were concern about the tax reform. Many residents felt as if the current tax reform is in place to only benefit the rich. Brindisi stated that change needs to be made to the tax bill.

“Well I think the tax bill was geared closely to the wealthiest Americans,” said Brindisi. “[The bill] has to be geared on the middle class, it should be geared on working individuals in this area.”

Congresswoman Claudia Tenney's campaign weighed in on the town hall stating the following.

"Anthony Brindisi didn’t have a town hall. He had a political rally sponsored by Democrats and the resistance movement stocked with his liberal supporters,” said Tenney's campaign. “When he was asked point blank if he would ban semi-automatic rifles he refused to answer even though he was just endorsed by a gun control group that wants to take our guns away."
