Press Release, Nate McMurray for Congress

Starting this afternoon at 4, Nate McMurray, candidate for U.S. Congress in New York’s 27th District, will hold digitally accessible Town Hall style events in an effort to stay accessible to voters during COVID-19 pandemic and necessity of social distancing.

The events will be streamed live and participants will have the opportunity to ask the candidate questions and receive answers in real time.

“This is a difficult time for our nation; the already struggling families of this district will be hit hard by this pandemic and need access to their leaders and candidates now more than ever,” McMurray said. “The focus of our campaign has always been to lift up the good people of this region; while the coronavirus will inarguably impact the way we interact with them, it’s critical that we maintain open lines of communication and support for one another. My team is committed to utilizing alternative forms of engagement in order to address concerns, discuss the issues that matter most to NY-27 residents, and connect people with the resources they need throughout this crisis.”

McMurray will begin live streaming today at 4 p.m. and will start every session by reading to the children of those participating. Those interested in attending the live session may access the event by clicking here.
