Grass-Roots Organizations Form,

Collaborate Around 19th District

By JIM KEVLIN • Special to www.AllOTSEGO.COM

John Faso at the Otsego County Chamber annual banquet last March.

With the 2016 campaign just over, the 2018 campaign in Otsego County’s 19th Congressional District is already starting.

Multiple grass-roots groups in Otsego County that have sprung up since Donald Trump’s election as president Nov. 8 are planning to rally with perhaps “several thousand” of like-minded people at Congressman John Faso’s Kinderhook office this weekend.

Shortterm, the goal is to convince the 19th District congressman to, one, host “town hall meetings” in each of the counties in the district, and, two, to work to assure central guarantees in the Affordable Care Act.

“I do feel strongly: We need to find some way to work with Faso, because he can do a lot of damage in these two years,” said Pam Kline of Indivisible CD19 NY, which is reaching across the 19th District to bring activists to Kinderhook.
