Washington, D.C. Congressman Bill Owens (D-Plattsburgh) will hold a community forum Saturday, Sept. 24 on campus at North Country Community College in Saranac Lake. Owens will give brief opening remarks about job creation and economic development and then answer direct questions from constituents.
“I am pleased to have the opportunity to provide a forum for Upstate New Yorkers to voice their concerns and discuss what is important to them,” said Owens. “The best way to solve problems is to have an open and civil discussion on issues that face the region and work together to find common sense solutions.”
In addition to holding regular town halls throughout New York’s 23rd Congressional District, Owens has connected with more than 62,000 Upstate New Yorkers through telephone town halls when his duties as a U.S. Representative have kept him in Washington. When not in Washington, Owens travels throughout the district -- which includes all or parts of eleven counties -- to hear constituent concerns and focus on his top priority of putting Upstate New Yorkers back to work.
All constituents from New York’s 23rd Congressional District are encouraged to attend Saturday’s event.
