Assembly Minority Leader Brian M. Kolb (R,I,C-Canandaigua) announced today that he will host a series of Town Hall meetings for residents across Ontario County on Saturday, February 4, 2012, to hear directly from local taxpayers, address their concerns and answer questions about state government. During his Town Hall meetings, Leader Kolb also will outline his public policy agenda for more private sector jobs, fewer mandates from Albany and real reform of state government, in addition to sharing details about the recently unveiled 2012-13 Executive Budget proposal.
The following is the schedule for Leader Kolb’s upcoming Town Hall meetings in Ontario County on Saturday, February 4, 2012:
- 10:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. at the Gorham Town Hall, 4736 South Street, Gorham;
- 10:45 a.m. – 11:15 a.m. at the Geneva Town Hall, 3750 County Road 6, Geneva;
- 11:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. at the Manchester Town Hall, 1272 County Road 7, Clifton Springs; and
- 12:30 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. at the Canandaigua Town Hall, 5440 Routes 5 & 20 West, Canandaigua
“Town Hall meetings are incredibly important because they help me stay in constant contact with the constituents of the 129th District so I can keep them informed about the latest news of what is happening in Albany and what their state government is doing. The feedback, opinions and insights I receive at my Town Hall meetings have been absolutely invaluable,” Leader Kolb said.
“I receive more good ideas for sensible solutions and effective public policies during my Town Hall meetings than practically anywhere else. A suggestion at a Town Hall meeting can quickly become the basis for legislation or constituent casework that solves a problem with a State Agency, cuts through layers of needless state bureaucracy and helps make New York a more affordable place to live and work for families and job creators,” Leader Kolb explained.
“A more responsive and accountable government that is of the people, by the people and for the people is the basis of our representative democracy – good government begins with the people. With the help and continued partnership of my constituents, I will keep working to ensure the people’s voices are heard in our State Capitol and deliver a strong message that more private sector jobs and less government should be Albany’s top legislative priorities. I look forward to meeting with taxpayers on February 4 as I kick off my 2012 Town Hall meetings in Ontario County,” Leader Kolb concluded.
