Congressman Hanna’s Utica office will not be in the Alexander Pirnie Federal Building as was the case for previous representatives Sherwood Boehlert and Michael Arcuri.
A spokesperson for the incoming congressman says he feels that being located in the 258 building in Downtown Utica will make his office more accessible to a greater number of constituents.
On his first day in office, Congressman Richard Hanna, (R) New York 24, voted to reduce his, and other individual members office budgets by 5%, and cut the operating budgets of House committee leadership offices. That means 35 million dollars in savings for taxpayers.
It may be a small part of the overall budget, but it’s a start and shows that congressman Hanna and the 112th Congress are listening to the message that was sent on November 2nd.
