Congressman Tom Reed hosting Ithaca town hall

by Jolene Almendarez
The Ithaca Voice

March 1, 2017

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.

Reed said in the news release, “We continue to hold town halls because I believe that having an open dialogue with my neighbors in New York’s 23rd district is the cornerstone of our democracy. I will always listen and work to find common ground to solve the problems facing our great nation.”

You're acting like I ran over your cat, or something!

What's wrong?

Did I do, or say something that upset you?

Going to the Tom Reed Town Hall Saturday? Here's what you need to know:

Ithaca.com
By Nia Nunn

March 10, 2017

Southside Community Center, Inc. affirms, empowers, and fosters the development of self-pride among Black citizens of greater Ithaca while providing programming for all underserved people throughout the county. The agency was incorporated in 1934 by a group of Black women who secured federal funding through the Works Progress Administration to address a lack of services and support from the City of Ithaca.

Southside Community Center, Inc. provides educational activities, recreation, cultural events, opportunities for political & social awareness, a food pantry, and other direct services. We are honored to host this historic meeting and appreciate the increasing visibility of the agency's mission and leadership role in the community. The timing could not be more providential as Southside Community Center, Inc. is in a time of crisis and seeking community support.

Here's what to expect if you are planning to attend:

Tickets for town hall meeting admission will be available on a first come, first served basis. There will be limited chairs available for seniors and those unable to stand during the meeting.
Ticketing will begin at 6:00am and doors will open at 7:00am.
The weather will be cold! Dress appropriately. People leaving the area to stay warm after receiving a ticket must return to Southside Community Center (SSCC) by 7:00am or seats may be given to waitlist ticket holders.
Dr. Nia Nunn, Southside Community Center Board President, will moderate the discussion.
Questions for Congressman Reed should be emailed to SouthsideTownHall@gmail.com by 5:00pm on Friday, 3/10/17.
The event will be live streamed via the Ithaca Voice website and there will be speakers outside of SSCC broadcasting a live audio feed.
There will be a rally at SSCC immediately following the town hall meeting with the goal of promoting continued community action.
Street parking will be extremely limited. Parking is available at the Cayuga and Green Street Garages.

If you cannot attend, please consider making a contribution to the SSCC. Your donation will help provide critical support to our programs which will serve youth, seniors and marginalized groups across Tompkins County.

Donations can be made securely online and will also be collected at the event. https://www.givegab.com/nonprofits/southside-community-center/campaigns/south-side-pride

For additional updates, including additional follow-up events, visit the SSCC Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/Southside-Community-Center-Inc-313557178998315/

Tom Reed town hall in Ithaca: 'I am here today because I care'

by Alyvia Covert
The Ithaca Voice

March 11, 2017

Despite the bitter wind and below-zero temperature, more than 500 people lined up outside the Southside Community Center to hear Congressman Tom Reed speak at a town hall early Saturday morning. The first people to arrive assumed their post on the front steps by 4 a.m. – by 7 a.m, the line stretched around the block.

Concerned constituents in Ithaca initially began calling for a town hall Q&A with Tom Reed after the presidential inauguration. It was questionable whether or not Reed would make an appearance to speak at a town meeting, but was confirmed last week that he would be arriving Saturday morning.

Attendees began filing into the gymnasium at the community center around 7:20 a.m., and it was nearly full ten minutes later. Those who were not able to fit into the gym gathered outside on the front steps of the center and listened to the Q&A through a sound system.

Dr. Nia Nunn, Southside Community Center Board President, was the first to address the crowd of people anxiously awaiting Reed’s appearance. “It is critical to know, for you to be informed, that you are standing in a space of greatness,” she said in opening remarks. “We model solidarity in a very unique way.”

It's very clear now, you running around with Chloroform in a rag.

I'm starting to think, I was right about you.

"I'm starting to think."

Cool you've began practicing basic interactions between brain areas, just don't rely on your flawless streak of inaccurate conclusions about me as a progress indicator.

Deep breaths Tommyboy. . .
