Village of Alfred, NY – Congressman Nick Langworthy went to the Village of Alfred to meet local officials and business leaders Wednesday morning to hear directly from them on the issues they are facing.
“Thank you to Mayor Jim Ninos and everyone who came out to meet with me. It’s important to me that I hear directly from the community, and I was happy to come out to the Village of Alfred to talk about what’s going on and look for ways to help. It is a major priority of mine that I get out across the whole district as much as possible.”
In the Village of Alfred, Congressman Langworthy sat with Mayor Jim Ninos, University of Alfred President Dr. Mark Zupan, Alfred State President Dr. Steven Mauro, Legislator Brook Harris, Legislator Phil Curran, Director of Economic Development Tim Boyde, Fire Chief Paul Weaver, and Kathleen Benzaquin from Century 21. After an hour-long discussion, Congressman Langworthy toured the village of Alfred with Mayor Jim Ninos and stopped in to see Phil Curran at Phil’s Frames and Gallery 2, and Dawn Bennett, owner of the Rouge Carrot.
Later Wednesday afternoon, Congressman Langworthy traveled to the City of Hornell to meet with Mayor John Buckley on a small business tour. The Congressman met with Chairman Dr. Rick Andolina and CEO Thomas Beers of the Maple City Savings Bank, DiAnza Macool of Blue Harmony Boutique, and Tammy Hamilton Tice at Doug’s Flower Shop.
“The City of Hornell is in good hands with Mayor John Buckley, who has been a fantastic partner in government. As elected leaders we need to support our local businesses. I come from a small business family, and I understand the hard work and dedication necessary to succeed. It’s been a long road for these small businesses that have survived the pandemic, and Hornell has some great businesses here that are helping Mayor Buckley bring back downtown.”
