UTICA, N.Y. -- A swearing-in ceremony is taking place for the incoming freshman class in Congress Thursday, which includes Anthony Brindisi.

From the shutdown to leadership voting, and picking out his office in Washington – Congressman-elect Anthony Brindisi joined Kristen Copeland for NewsTalk on one of the last days he's in town before he officially takes office as the representative for the 22nd Congressional District.

“The election's over. I'm honored to serve everybody in this community. When I get to Washington, after swearing in, we are going to have to go right to work. No one believes it is good to have a government shutdown. It’s not good for federal work force, and it makes things look more dysfunctional in Washington. So, and we have, we have to get things done, and then we have to have some serious debates, border security. I'm for more border security. And then, let's work together,” Brindisi said.

Brindisi says he’s ready to get to work.
