New Congressman – New Utica Office Location

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.


First Day In Office

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.
