Our Congresswoman Claudia Tenney visited Cortland Monday morning to speak before the Chamber of Commerce.
Tenney spent a few minutes after the event to speak with X101 News’ John Eves. “The hardest part of this job is prioritizing, not just what we’re focusing on, but your time, and how we can get to as many places and as many people and get as much feedback, productive feedback, as you can from people,” said Rep. Tenney.
She told the Chamber she’s not afraid to face the tough issues. “…and so I feel like it’s my job to take the hard votes, and I’ll deal with trying to explain it and work toward the better good.”
Tenney says she forgets the critics. “They want us just to go out and all of a sudden we’re going to hit a home run every day. We’re not going to hit a home run. I’m a person that believes in singles. We gotta get singles, get a run, get to the next step, get to the next one. It’s hard work every day, chipping off as much as we can without losing too much progress on some other things.”
Members discussed issues affecting our community and business in Cortland County at the breakfast meeting at the Mini-Conference Center on Port Watson Street in Cortland.
