Assemblyman to open office in Rome on Friday

Assemblyman Anthony J. Brindisi, D-116, Utica, will open his new Rome office at a ribbon cutting ceremony to be held at 9:30 a.m. Friday.

The public is invited to attend. The office is located at 117 N. James St., at the Fort Stanwix Parking Garage.

"A Rome office will allow constituents in the City of Rome, and the towns of Whitestown, Marcy and Floyd another option if they want to schedule an appointment," Brindisi said. "This is a pledge that I made during my campaign for the Assembly last year. It is important to me that constituents in Rome and the western part of my district have a convenient option to meet with myself or my staff besides my district office in Utica."

Brindisi said the Rome office will be open Fridays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and by appointment. The Utica District office in Room 401 of the State Office Building at 207 Genesee St. is open weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Anyone wanting to make an appointment for either office should call 732-1055.

Representatives from the Rome Area Chamber of Commerce will be on hand to welcome attendees to the ceremony.
