Faso, opponents don't list public events

Oct 10, 2017 2:15 pm
The "daily public schedule" of Rep. John Faso (R-Kinderhook) is usually blank. On the rare occasion when Faso does post an event, it is usually a few minutes before or after the event begins. There are currently seven Democrats who want to challenge Faso for New York's 19th Congressional District in 2018, and they also do not list most of their public events online. Jeff Beals, Steven Brisee, Dave Clegg, Antonio Delgado, Brian Flynn, Gareth Rhodes, and Pat Ryan all do not list any or many future public events online. None of the Democrats who want to challenge Faso even have a page on their websites for public events. A few use Facebook pages, but rarely post events beforehand. So, while Democrat Scott Murphy and Republican Chris Gibson both listed their public events when they held the office, there is little now to suggest such transparency from a local congressperson again anytime soon.
