CHENANGO COUNTY - Congressman Anthony Brindisi held a tele-town hall meeting on Wednesday, with guest speakers from the IRS, an economic development agency, and Oneida County government to give updates in their respective fields.
The teleconference was held at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, and topics including missing coronavirus stimulus checks, what local businesses need from the government, and how government can be an example of best practices during a pandemic.
“As we continue to fight back against the global pandemic and do our best to safely and responsibly reopen our economy here in Upstate New York, it's important now more than ever that we hold events like this,” said Brindisi. “Although we can’t meet in person, town halls are an excellent opportunity for people to ask questions and get answers to some of the things that are on their minds.”
“It's been amazing to watch our communities work together, we’ve seen people making masks for each other, businesses offering their supply chains to help secure PPE, people delivering food to our heroes like our first responders, doctors, and our essential workers who are sacrificing to keep people safe.”
According to Internal Revenue Service (IRS) District Congressional Liaison Kevin McKeon, the IRS has been working hard to ensure that individuals who have yet to receive their stimulus checks are able to do so.
