Congresswoman Claudia Tenney Kicks Off Second Year of Renew NY-22 Tour with Infrastructure Week
Tenney Tours Rural Water Facilities to Highlight Infrastructure Week
Deansboro, NY— Today, Congresswoman Claudia Tenney (NY-22) began the second year of Renew NY-22, a plan she introduced last year to create jobs, grow the economy and increase economic opportunity in upstate New York. After taking what she learned from her tour of the district back to Washington, Rep. Tenney is headed on another tour of the district to highlight what was accomplished and the work that still needs to be done. During the month of August Rep. Tenney will continue the Renew NY-22 tour of our district. This week, Rep. Tenney will emphasize the need to invest in infrastructure in a fiscally responsible way that targets those projects most in need of support.
This morning, Rep. Tenney kicked off infrastructure week at the Deansboro Water Development Facility to see firsthand how federal dollars are being spent to support and upgrade our water infrastructure. She then visited the Vernon Center to speak with local officials about the proposed Vernon Center Water District. The tour highlighted water systems identified in a needs survey conducted by New York Rural Water Association Circuit Rider Doug Smorol, who joined Rep. Tenney on the tour.
“Due to a lack of strong and sustained investments, America’s infrastructure is lagging behind—especially in rural communities like the 22nd District. Today I had the opportunity to tour Deansboro Water Development Facility which serves hundreds of people throughout the Town of Marshall. It is vital that rural water facilities are properly funded to ensure safe drinking water. During my tour, I met with David Lenhart, a Vernon resident whose drinking water was contaminated with salt. Safe drinking water is a priority for every community and through Renew NY-22, I’ll continue to ensure our municipalities receive the funding to support and upgrade rural infrastructure,” said Congresswoman Claudia Tenney.”
