Ballston Spa, N.Y. – Today, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY-21), Chairman of the House Republican Millennial Task Force, held a roundtable with millennial panelists from New York’s 21st district in Ballston Spa. Congresswoman Stefanik is working with the House Republican Policy Committee to develop policies that address concerns facing the millennial generation.
“Our district is home to many millennials who can speak to the concerns of this generation, which is now the largest generation in our labor force,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “Through a series of hearings and roundtables in the district and in Washington, I want representatives of the millennial generation to have a say in policies that are crafted by our conference and that are passed through Congress. Today’s roundtable in Ballston Spa was an important opportunity for millennial leaders in our district to offer their insights into the policy making process.”
The panelists at today’s roundtable included Alyson Slack, Economic Development Analyst, Camoin Associates; Falon Ferraro, Account Services, Fingerpaint; Alyssa Felio, Group Marketing Specialist, Adirondack Coast Visitors Bureau; and Ethan Allen, Machine Shop Manager, Allenwaite Farms.
