Assemblywoman Addie J. Russell (Theresa, NY) announced today that she will hold a Town Hall Meeting Saturday February 27th in Ogdensburg. The forum will take place at 2PM at the Ogdensburg Free Academy auditorium.

The Assemblywoman stated, “Local voices truly need to be heard in Albany now. Families from all over the North Country will be affected by the Governor’s proposal to close the Ogdensburg Correctional Facility. Our Town Hall Meeting will give our people the opportunity to be heard.”

“The concerns and the issues identified in this forum will be recorded and carried by me to Albany. I’ll also make certain that the Governor and Legislature will be aware of the concerns of North Country citizens as budget deliberations continue. The most pressing need for our region is job retention and job creation. All citizens are invited to express their opinions.”
