SYRACUSE, NEW YORK – U.S. Rep. John Katko (NY-24) today announced that he will host a public forum this month focused on assisting veterans in Wayne County.  The event will be held Wednesday, August 22 at 6:30 p.m. in the community room at the Wayne County Public Safety Building.    

Like past community forums, Rep. Katko will be joined for the event by a panel of local experts to help answer questions and foster an informative discussion.

“Throughout my time serving Central New York in Congress, I’ve found these listening sessions extremely helpful in working to address issues facing our community,” said Rep. John Katko. “Our veterans have put their lives on the line to defend our freedom and our democracy.  Wayne County is home to thousands of men and women who have served our great nation, and I’m committed to ensuring these individuals and their families have access to the highest quality of care and services.  This forum will connect our local veterans and their families with the VA and other local groups that support veterans.  I look forward to a robust discussion at next week’s forum.”

The event will be Katko’s tenth public forum since 2015, and is free and open to the public.  Only credentialed members of the media will be permitted to tape.  Time will be allotted for questions.
