NORWICH – Senator Raymond A. Meier (R-Western) stopped in Norwich Wednesday to campaign for the United States Congress. Meier began his visit to Norwich at the Chenango County Chamber of Commerce, where he met with a variety of business leaders.
Dave Hall, president and CEO of the chamber, made it clear that it would not be appropriate for the chamber to endorse any politician or party, before introducing Meier to the crowd.
“This is a great opportunity to meet with a candidate for United States Congress,” Hall said. He took the opportunity to point out the race’s significance not only to New York State, but also on the national level, determining whether Democrats or Republicans will hold the majority in the House of Representatives.
Meier acknowledged that fact, but told the group that is not what the race is really about.
“This is about our seat in the house, and about which candidate best represents the ideas of this district,” Meier said.
