Congressman Reed to make the rounds in Buffalo

   Republican Rep. Tom Reed of Corning will be in Buffalo on Friday, and his visit will prove far from a social call. He will attend a lunch with influential Republicans hosted by Erie County Republican Chairman Nicholas A. Langworthy as upcoming reapportionment continues to provide intriguing possibilities.

   GOP sources say there is always a possibility that the former mayor of Corning could end up in a portion of Erie County if the makers of congressional districts somehow go wild with their boundary pens. But even before that process gets off the ground, Reed now stands as the only Republican member of Congress with any ties to Western New York (Cattaraugus and Allegany counties), and Langworthy says it is good for him to make the rounds here.

   "It's a good opportunity to meet some fine Buffalo folks," Langowrthy said.

   The chairman also noted that Reed has signed up for his campaign staff Pam Baker, a veteran fundraiser who previously worked for former Reps. Tom Reynolds and Chris Lee.
