UTICA -- Congressman-elect Anthony Brindisi is traveling the 22nd district to thank his supporters who helped him get elected.

He stopped in Utica Tuesday to talk to those supporters at his party at the Delta Hotel in Utica. Brindisi says he held the party to show his appreciation for the work his supporters did for his campaign.

Brindisi will officially become the congressman once he is sworn-in next month. Some issues he says he wants to focus on are healthcare, immigration, and the opioid crisis.

Brindisi says he wants to get out and talk to community leaders to learn, first-hand, the issues they are concerned about.

"I also want to get out there and let people know that whether you voted for me or not, I want to represent everyone in this district to the best of my ability and that's what we're going to do,” Brindisi said. “Once the elections are over, that's when the governing begins and I'm very much looking forward to representing the people in this community."

Brindisi defeated incumbent republican candidate Claudia Tenney, in a tight race, during the November midterm elections.

Brindisi's thank you parties will continue throughout the 22nd district through next week.
The new congressional session is set to begin on Jan. 3.
