WASHINGTON – Sen. Kirsten E. Gillibrand, a New York Democrat, will hold a town hall meeting in Buffalo on Thursday.
Gillibrand's office said Monday the senator will take questions from constituents on issues ranging from health care to jobs and the economy.
The event will take place from 5 to 6:30 p.m. in Rockwell Hall Auditorium at Buffalo State College, 1300 Elmwood Ave. Space is limited, so those wishing to attend are asked to respond at https://www.gillibrand.senate.gov/buffalotownhall.
This will be the seventh town hall Gillibrand has held this summer across the state.
It's an infrequent event in Buffalo. Neither of the region's House members – Rep. Brian Higgins, a Buffalo Democrat, and Rep. Chris Collins, a Clarence Republican – hold town hall meetings with constituents.
And while Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer, a New York Democrat, travels to Buffalo frequently for community events and press conferences, he also tends not to hold town hall meetings.
