ITHACA, N.Y. — Congressman Tom Reed announced Wednesday morning that he is hosting a town hall on the Southside of Ithaca.

The town hall is happening from 8 – 9 a.m. on March 11 at the Southside Community Center, located at 305 S. Plain St.

According to Reed’s Communications Director Brandy Brown, the last time Reed had a town hall meeting at a location in the City of Ithaca was May 2, 2016, when he spoke in a classroom at Cornell University. The last time he hosted one in Ithaca, and not at Cornell, was June 20, 2015.

Reed also met with a group of protesters who were camping out in his office for nearly three days after refusing to leave until they spoke with him.
