NEWBURGH – Congressmen Sean Patrick Maloney and Antonio Delgado will discuss how politics in Washington affects the Hudson Valley when they sit down for the wide-ranging “Making the Connection: From Washington to the Hudson Valley” discussion hosted by Hudson Valley Pattern for Progress on March 29.
The legislators will also discuss their efforts to protect the interests of the Hudson Valley in a divided Congress and the challenge of effecting policy change in a deeply partisan environment. “Making the Connection” is a rare opportunity to hear directly about politics and policy from our elected federal representatives.
Hudson Valley Pattern for Progress CEO and President Jonathan Drapkin will moderate the conversation.
“Bringing the national dialogue to the Hudson Valley has never been as important as it is today,” said Drapkin. “From shutting down the government to immigration policy, the actions in Washington are felt throughout our region.”
Delgado, a first-term Democratic congressman, represents New York’s 19th congressional district. Maloney, also a Democrat, is serving his fourth term. He represents New York’s 18th congressional district.
The event is open to the public and runs from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. at the Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel located at 40 Civic Center Plaza in Poughkeepsie. Ticket price varies for Pattern for Progress members and for non-members.
Sponsors for the event are Delaware Engineering, WMCHealth, Chazen Companies and Zarin & Steinmetz. To make reservations or to inquire about sponsorship opportunities, call Robin DeGroat at 845-565-4900 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
