Two democrats running to challenge Rep. Tom Reed for Congress next year issued responses to the town halls he hosted Saturday.

Congressional candidate Rick Gallant also attended Reed’s Lindley town hall Saturday.

“Although Rep. Reed is doing his job by holding towns halls around this district, his voting record in Congress shows that he doesn’t listen to the concerns of the people he was elected to represent and that these town halls are little more than political theater,” Gallant said in a statement.
