A believer in grassroots democracy, Assemblyman Pete Lopez (R,C,I – Schoharie) has scheduled a public outreach meeting for the towns of Durham, Greenville and Cairo. The meeting will be held on Thursday, October 25 at 7 p.m. at the Durham Town Hall, located on the corner of Rts. 81 and 27.

“Meeting with members of the community and initiating productive dialogue is the best way to establish goals and find ways to make the 127th Assembly District the best place it can possibly be,” stated Lopez. “This meeting is a vital part of developing this partnership.”

At the meeting, Lopez will give a brief overview of the happenings in Albany, and then ask members of the community to share their concerns and priorities. Lopez is holding this session in order to strengthen awareness of, and attention to, local concerns and priorities.

“So far I have held thirteen meetings, and I am very encouraged by the feedback I am getting from attendees,” Lopez said. “I will use this information in working to effect change in Upstate New York, and look forward to strengthening this important relationship with the people of my Assembly District.”
