Members of the U.S. Congress that represent parts of Central New York are trying to get to know their new districts and constituents this week.

Rep. Brandon Williams, a Republican serving the Syracuse, Utica and Rome area, and GOP Rep. Claudia Tenney, who represents part of the North Country and the Finger Lakes, are hosting open house events at satellite offices this week.

Williams will hold an office opening and celebration Tuesday in Syracuse and Wednesday in Utica.  While Tenney will host similar events Thursday in Oswego and Friday in Victor.  She also has satellite offices in Lockport and Watertown. 

Tenney’s old Utica-area and southern tier district was absorbed by other districts after redistricting, including Williams’ 22nd District, which now includes Onondaga, Madison, and Oneida Counties.
