Tom Reed (R-NY), the 23rd Congressional District representative, will be at Keuka College Thursday, Aug. 21 at 3:30 p.m. at the Jephson Athletic Fields.

Reed will be on campus to deliver some brief remarks and meet members of the college and local communities.

The former mayor of his hometown of Corning, Congressman Reed, whose district includes Yates County, serves on the Committee on Ways and Means. The committee has broad jurisdiction over issues including tax policy, trade, health care, and Social Security. He serves on the Human Resources, Oversight, and Select Revenue Measures subcommittees of Ways and Means.

Reed is part a 10-member bipartisan coalition that is championing the Campus Accessibility and Safety Act in the House of Representatives. U.S. Sen. Kristen Gillibrand (D-NY) and a bi-partisan group of her colleagues recently introduced the legislature in the Senate.

Currently, Reed co-chairs the House Manufacturing Caucus and Congressional Natural Gas Caucus, and is vice chair of the Congressional Diabetes Caucus. He has also served on the Rules, Judiciary, and Transportation and Infrastructure committees.

In the event of inclement weather, the event will be held in Hegeman Hall 109.
