NEW YORK – Today, Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney announced he will hold 30 town halls across New York State in the next 30 days. He will kick it off by holding a telephone town hall tonight with thousands of New Yorkers followed by “running town halls” in Brooklyn and Manhattan where people can join Maloney for a morning run and ask questions about issues important to them. The run will end with a short in-person town hall.
“Town halls give me the chance to talk to thousands of New Yorkers from all over the state about what they want to see in their next attorney general,” said Maloney. “I’ve held nearly 150 town halls as a member of Congress and it’s some of the best work I do – and I want to take that same level of transparency and accountability to the attorney general’s office.”
