Congressman Zeldin said, “It was such a pleasure to meet with so many great constituents at today’s Town Halls to hear concerns and answer questions. At the Community Forums, we were able to cover a breadth of very important issues, including healthcare, the environment, foreign policy, economic growth, several local issues, and so much more. My days have been filled with great meetings with so many constituents who have requested meetings, which have spanned the ideological spectrum. I am willing to work with absolutely anyone to move our country forward, no matter what your ideological background is, and I welcome any opportunity to engage in substantive, productive dialogue. If we are to move our nation forward, it is so important that we unite to find common ground.”

Congressman Zeldin’s days are nearly always completely packed with one on one and small group meetings with constituents, including many with individuals who have participated in protests. Some of his 2017 outreach activities have also included Mobile Office Hours, TeleTown Halls, a Facebook Live session, and much more. Just this past Friday, Congressman Zeldin hosted Mobile Office hours in Peconic where he met with several dozen more constituents.
