Congressman Anthony Brindisi met with key defense industry partners at the Griffiss Business and Technology Park in Rome on Monday.

Brindisi brought together the stakeholders, local officials and Department of Defense officials for a discussion of the region's priorities.

Brindisi was recently named to the House Armed Services Committee.

“As a new member of the House Armed Services Committee, it is important for the Mohawk Valley and Rome in particular to have a seat at the table,” Brindisi said. “From the critical mission in Rome to the countless jobs provided by the defense industry in our region, Upstate New York continues to be a key player in the defense of our nation. From this committee, I will fight to make sure our region continues to lead and that our brave men and women in uniform have the resources they need to fight and win.”

Griffiss Park is home to Rome Lab, DFAS and the Eastern Air Defense Sector.
