CLINTON, N.Y. – Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand stopped by Hamilton College Monday as part of her tour of town halls around the state.
Gillibrand said she wanted to hear directly from young adults about their concerns and what issues mean the most to them.
"I'm now just doing my job as a senator, and want to keep doing those town halls around the state, because it's really important for me to hear directly from constituents, what they care about, 24:44 and I'm making an extra effort to go to college campuses this year, to make sur young people realize how important their votes are and their voices," said Gillibrand.
She also addressed flooding in the area and the recent announcement that FEMA is coming to assess the damage.
“They have to certify that this is a storm of a certain level so that people can start receiving funds. we are trying to make that process go faster so people can get relief faster” she said.
Gillibrand said she joins other state officials in calling on FEMA to expedite the local claims and get the communities the assistance they need in a timely fashion.
