Invisible Constituents Protest & Rally

October 17, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

At 872 Main St, Buffalo, NY 14202-1403 (offices of ZeptoMetrix, one of Collins’ questionable business interests). While Chris Collins holds a million dollar fundraiser with Vice President Mike Pence on October 17th, citizens and friends of the 27th District will come together to give voice to the voiceless, and visibility to the invisible. Earlier this year, Mr. Collins told Renee Sutton that he only represents the 67.2% of voters in his district that voted for him.

We disagree.

We believe that our representatives should listen and appreciate every single constituent in their district. They should understand our needs regardless of party or political affiliation.

Representative Collins believes that helping himself by voting for policies that benefit millionaires and billionaires is more important. He believes being rewarded for loyalty to Trump administration while being under an ethics investigation is completely appropriate.

And finally, a recent report by Jerry Zremski of the Buffalo News shows us just how much Chris Collins prioritizes his business relationships with 18 different companies over the people’s work in Congress:

Join us and be heard as we gather at just one of those businesses, ZeptoMetrix in Downtown Buffalo on October 17! Constituents that would like to share their stories of how Chris Collins’ policies have been, or are currently affecting their lives, please email [email protected].

PLEASE NOTE: A separate protest will also be held at the location of the Collins/Pence fundraiser luncheon should reliable details be released in time to ensure the safety and security of all participants. Please check back here for updates.
