On Oct. 23, the Hamilton College Program in Washington students had the privilege of meeting with Representative Richard Hanna. He represents New York’s 22nd district, which includes Hamilton College.

Hanna is currently in his second term in the House of Representatives.  During the visit he shared his thoughts on the recent government shutdown and the current polarized environment in Congress. He also explained the ways in which compromise between the two parties has become increasingly difficult.

Hanna also discussed some of his key policy issues, such as education, with Hamilton students, and answered questions. He explained that performing important casework for his constituents was one of the most rewarding parts of being a member of Congress.
